If you plow your cow, you rattle your cattle.

Thanks Nirvana, I've never seen triplets. Were they light?
Griff Sunday Mar 4 08:32 AM
I've never seen trips before, very cool.

This is what happens when cows start abusing in vitro technology!

Your vet is a very strange man if he has three calves.
Griff Sunday Mar 4 12:19 PM
His wife is most fortunate though.

How are they going to keep the little darlings fed, bottle or wet nurse cow? I recall from somewhere (probably All Creatures Great and Small) that it's difficult getting twin baby moocows enough milk to sustain them. Bessie does not do the one per teat kind of nursing.

@ Bruce I have asked your question waiting for an answer.

One of my Dad's sheep had triplet lambs last season. They weren't lucky enough to be born in a barn though. lol In fact, they were born in the paddock during one of our fairly common downpours. Poor things. They all did ok though. A ewe that lost her baby ended up fostering the trips and helping the mother raise them. Strange but true.

Is it true that little lambs eat ivy?
wolf Sunday Mar 4 07:21 PM
A kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you?
Nirvana Sunday Mar 4 07:41 PM
Triplets are pretty common in sheep, my neighbor has had 3 sets so far this year.

Our little lambs eat ivy. And wisteria. And jasmine. And wormwood. And anything else they can reach through the mesh, or by zipping through the gate when you open it. And I just discovered they eat eucalyptus leaves too. (Branch fell off one of the trees into their paddock.

Well it was a bit of a surprise for Dad. He only keeps enough to slaughter for his own table, so only a dozen or so ewes.

Mail one to me and I'll raise it here. How big could it get?

If cow litter works on the same principle as kitty litter, we're gonna need a bigger scooper.
Aliantha Sunday Mar 4 11:29 PM
and a bigger box.
