Pinky surprised us with quadruplets on Sunday. She is a Finn sheep or Finnish Landrace. They are known to have multiple lambs. She has had triplets and quadruplets before. We moved them into a stall which is protected from the weather. They stay in the stall for a few days while mom rests and the lambs learn the ropes of nursing and dealing with the world. It is a big place for the little lambs. Here is a portrait of the family.
