Triplet BFL lambs from Kearsley out of Beeston Titan

The ram lamb is on the far left. He was born first. Tiny crimp all over his body. VERY striking boy. The girl on the far right was born next, followed by the one in the middle. They seem to have worked out an eating system. Having never had triplets before in sheep, this will all be very interesting to see how they grow on and how they nurse in the future.

Beechtree Kearsley is F2 CarryHouse V2, with only Rossiebank Laird elsewhere in her pedigree. Other than that she is all domestic. Its lucky that I can then use her in any direction to make a slightly unrelated line. Kearsley this year was bred AI to Beeston Titan (via semen from Lisa Rodenfel). Thanks Lisa! These lambs are smashing!

Kearsley's daughter, beechtree Kershope was also AI'ed but she did not take. I'm hoping she starts bagging up from being with Kirkdale as her clean up ram. Otherwise she is open. Which would be a bummer.
