The triplets were all ewe lambs, and are named Trillium, Teasel, and Mabel. Teasel is one of the moms in the pictures that Kris posted, so she has a Tunis mom and a Katahdin dad. She was bred last December to a Romanov ram. I have a neighbor that has this breed, and I decided to use this ram, as he throws lambs that are small at birth yet very vigorous. This way, they are relatively easy to deliver.
Teasel's sister, Mabel, had twins this morning! Teasel's other sister, Trillium, looks like she is going to have her lambs tonight. I believe Kris also posted pictures of Rosa and her lambs. Rosa is another daughter of Tuney's and a half sister to Teasel, Mabel, and Trillium. Tuney is also supposed to lamb, as is another daughter of hers that has a Blue-faced Leicester for a dad, but they do not look that close yet.
So hopefully this clears up the lamb lineage question and hopefully Kris will post lots more lamb pictures. I keep trying to tell her that lambs are MUCH more photogenic than donkeys!! And if you think these lambs are fun to look at, wait until Kris finally gets around to taking a video of my other border collie, Kelsey, while she is leaping after the Frisbee or performing an amazing outrun with the sheep!! I am having a little trouble convincing Kris that sheep are so much superior to donkeys. This is not surprising, as I have spent years trying to get her to accept that Scout and not Tanner was the pick of the litter!! So my advice to you is to request Kris to post more pictures of Kelsey, Scout, and the sheep!! Oh, and don't forget to ask to see this year's group of calves, Dublin, Lars, Kendal, and Earthquake. They are a pretty good looking bunch too!
Well, I guess that told me. While you are all waiting for me to get more pictures of this years lambs and dogs and calves...how about lambie pictures from a couple of years ago to tide you over (and make somebody else stop whining at me for not posting enough lamb pictures).
