busy holiday in the barn

cold weather brings the lambing on, and we were busy for the last 2 weeks with 13 born including twins a couple of times PLUS the second set of triplets ever to live since we began as shepherds.
One's currently in our home as the mum only took two on for nursing so we'll have a bottle baby. Great for visitors to feed a baby lamb with a bottle and they're usually quite friendly for the rest of their lives. She's called TINA named so by our neighbour who rescued her from the barn while we were away and took her into their home for a day.
Fiona and daddy hold the twins, born the same morning as the triplets. The mottled one is a girl too and looking for a name.
