Latest lambs

Wilkie had a big set of twins about 5PM.  They are doing great!
A ram and a ewe named Mimosa.  They are sired by Xcel.
A young Potosi ewe - Elsie #25.  She had triplets in the evening,
 and the tiny girl in the sweater got pretty chilled by the time the third lamb was
 delivered.  It was stillborn - a ewe.  :^(   Little brother was in the middle, and he is
doing really well.  Tiny girl is holding her own, but still waiting
to see if she is strong enough to make it.  She has the biggest,
blackest shining eyes. She certainly has the will to live.
(and yes, Kathy, she had them way out in the back of the pasture - HEHE)
Bess and her huge twins.  They are also sired by Xcel.  They
were born this morning, and already looking like the are a
few days old.   There is a ram, and a ewe named Eden.

Is Tiny one in the sweater OK? My ewes usually come to the barn to lamb. Maybe they are still looking for their PA barn?
