Lynda: "Had quads this am, triplets at 1am in night (triplets needed a vet), still farting with mothered on twins... Dunno what day it is, brain gone!"
Sunday (Mother's Day): "Greenback had one huge dead lamb so trying to mother 2 onto her but she has face on (rejecting lambs)"
Fortunately, the workmen are willing to lend a hand - last week Howard had to leave the farm and in the meantime, the prolapse sheep was giving birth. A workman held the prolapse sheep while Lynda cut the stitches (first time ever she did this) but all was well!
Oh, my goodness - there's going to be a lot of bottle feeding going on. Is quads a record for you? It must be. So sorry about Greenback's one lamb and her unwillingness to take on some little ones. Hope something improves there. Thinking of you and sending prayers.

My word, there has been lots going on behind the scenes. So sorry to hear of the dead lamb and hope Greenback will take the two lambs. Well done Lynda and the workmen too for helping out. Sending thoughts and prayers that there will only be quiet and successful births to come. :)

Lots of lambs, wonderful. Hope you are getting some rest.

Not the best of Mother's Day for you, Lynda. I do hope all goes well for the lambs. Sorry to hear about Greenback's lamb. Do you have to feed some of the quads? You and Howard are in my thoughts and prayers.

Last week I was watching the field in the late afternoon when the largest sheep I've ever seen passed by the camera - she looked like a battleship in full sail. I made a bet on triplets, but she might have been the one carrying quads.

Oh wow! Unbelievable! Wish I had magical powers so I could blink myself there. I would help however I could!! Has this ever happened before - quads? or triplets? Can't wait to see them.
