2AM Update: Yes we have a set of triplets born around 8PMish out of one of the two new ewes that came here late last fall. This is a Merino/Romney cross ewe and she was bred by Monday. The babes are two ewe lambs named Hannah (black) and Jessa (white) and a ram lamb named Adam. Brick's Marnie and Ray are doing well. I was just outside with the triplets on the hill and they seem to be okay, with bellies full and still in the barn with the heat lamp above them. I checked on the other two ewes still waiting to pop and neither seemed to be in labor but they are both at the farthest point in the pasture (about 3 acres away) from the barn with the heat lamp. Exactly where I found these three on an evening check. I carried all three out of the woods and into the barn and mom has kept them there and is trying to manage! I might be supplementally feeding these guys but not taking them away from mom.
