First Set Of Sextuplet Lambs Born In Dorset

Sextuplets, Colesmore Farm

1:56pm 9th April 2014

What's thought to be the first set of sextuplet lambs have been born in Dorset.

The 6 new arrivals came into the world at Colesmoor Farm inToller Porcorum.

Mum and her 6 new borns are all said to be doing well.

Owner of Colesmoor Farm Rorie Geddes, said: "Although we have lots of triplets and quadruplets and the occasional quintuplet from our 300 ewes, we have never heard of a commercial ewe having six good lambs. Mum to the six healthy lambs is a five year old Roussin cross Mule ewe and is pictured with our Vet students Sophie Brown and Hannah Johnstone. She had been pregnancy scanned to have five lambs so it was a nice surprise for Emily, our night time lamber, when a sixth turned up. She will probably rear three of them and the other three will join our other orphan lambs."
