The Triplet Lambs are Growing Up
If you are a regular reader, you may recall one Barbado ewe had triplets in Januaray. She was not producing quite enough milk and as a result we started bottle feeding one of her ewe lambs a few times throughout the day. Well, as it happened the other brown sister also wanted to get in on the bottle action, so we shared one bottle between the two lambs. Both were also drinking from their mother. Their brother was much bigger in size, but the two ewe lambs are pretty much caught up to him now.
The two ewe lambs are brown, the ram lamb is white and even has small horns, the lamb furthest back looks extra small due to the angle of the picture but is the same size has her sister in front.
