Super cute!

Do you know ahead of time that they're having multiples or is it a wait and see thing?

I second Ashley's question!

Multiples in dairy cows are generally a bad thing. The heifers are often infertile (What the Heck? I've no idea why) and it is usually really hard on the mother. We ultrasound all our cows for dating purposes. If we see multiples, we do let nature take its course. There are some barns who have show cows who will abort to prevent the mothers' getting ill after the birth.

Do you ultrasound your sheep?

Multiples are the "norm" for sheep Their first year lambing many will have singles, but after that twins are normal/expected, sometimes you get triplets and even quads, and most farmers actually cull (sell) ewes who consistently have singles. My sheep are all only yearlings so that's why I'm getting singles this year. Next year I shouldn't have any.

No, we don't ultrasound them. It's a wait and see game. We, and most other sheep farms, keep records of lambing percentages (and ease of lambing, mothering instinct, etc..) on each ewe and work at creating good production/mothering bloodlines. My sheep are half Friesen (a milking breed lol) so they can produce more milk to support triplets when they do occur, so I hopefully don't have to bottle feed

I know with beef cattle (my family raises those) it's the same as with dairy, twins are not a good thing. Same with horses, in fact I know with big money performance horses they'll often "pinch" (abort) one of the twins if they find them via ultrasound. Sheep and goats are a whole other ball game though lol (for the record, I will never own a goat again!! LOL!)

Here's my latest lil ewe lamb born. She'll be a gorgeous addition to my flock! A single, and yeah since her mama is a first time mama that's normal but next year she will have twins or triplets.

Also, sorry for my absence the last few days!! Lambing time is so busy, my chores like triple lol I bring the mamas and babies in the barn at night and the rest of flock waiting to lamb into the front corral by the barn and make sure the dog is in there with them. Lambs are so tiny when they are new, and we have lots of predators here :/ So I am very protective with them at first lol
