A Wyuna fam­ily with a pas­sion for pet sheep has hit the jack­pot this lamb­ing. Last week pure Merino ewe Tinka de­liv­ered four lambs for her own­ers, Ta­mara and chil­dren Amelia and Thomas. The off­spring of a Merino-Dor­per cross sur­vived and were do­ing well. “Tinka was pretty big, and with a cross like this we were not sur­prised when she de­liv­ered two lambs,” Ta­mara said. “Then a third one popped out and we were amazed. And then there was a fourth.”
