Three Newborn Lambs

Three Little Lambs, 1

I’ve made numerous trips to see the sheep at Middleton Place over the last couple weeks, looking forward to the arrival of some lambs. May 5th was the official day the barnyard workers were giving for the four pregnant sheep in their care to deliver.

Finally, on May 9th, I found three lambs: one had been born on May 7th, and a set of twins had been born that morning.

The three lambs were pretty active and getting them all in one shot wasn’t happening. Notice the extra curly textured coat on the lamb on the right.

The families have been given a pen of their own, where they’ll stay for a few weeks. The rest of the flock spends nights in the pen on the left and days free-roaming the property; the Cashmere Goats are to the right.

The little ones mostly followed their own mother, legs a bit wobbly.

They were also a bit curious about the humans watching them.
