Well I spoke too soon. At this morning’s sheep check at 6:00 am we found a ewe, 298 Caridwen, with 3 lambs. All three were out, dry and had nursed. 2 ewes and a ram lamb. Unfortunately Caridwen can only for sure count to two so we put her in a jug on pasture until she learns she has three to care for. She gets good mom points for getting them all out and cleaned off and not tangled. I just wish she’d only had 2 though. I’m not sure she will have enough milk to feed all three. I sure hope the rest of the wooly beach balls are not hiding three lambs inside!
