Amazingly, our flock’s lambing percentage has surged above 200% this year. Homeschooled Farm Girl burst into my office a moment ago with big news: Nera has had triplets, just like her sister Licorice did a few weeks ago. All three of these triplets are males: two black and one brown.
No triplets since our first year of lambing (2003), and now two sets in the same month. Incredible. This makes fifteen lambs from seven ewes, and just one death. With one ewe left to deliver, even if she only singles, we’re still guaranteed a 200% average for the full flock.
Looks like we should have a whole lot of lamb in the freezer this winter. And a whole lot of wool to send to the fiber mill.
