Sheep gives birth to twin lambs

Bray People - - News -

PIGS may have been hog­ging the re­cent head­lines due to the re­cent pork cri­sis but Ash­ford farmer Peader Shortt couldn’t keep his mind of lambs, Christ­mas lambs to be ex­act.

Most peo­ple quite rightly as­so­ciate young lambs spring­ing across green fields with the Spring time, and usu­ally they would be dead right.

How­ever, Peadar had a sur­prise in store when two newly born Lambs were de­liv­ered just a few weeks short of Christ­mas.

While la­belling it a Christ­mas mir­a­cle may be a bit of a stretch, in all Peader’s years of farm­ing he can’t ever re­call one lamb born so late into the year, never- mind twins.

In keep­ing with the fes­tive theme youngsters Amy, Jen­nifer and Julie ar­rived at the farm only an hour or so af­ter the two lambs had been born and man­aged to grab a snap that looked like it could have come straight out of a na­tiv­ity scene cen­tring around a Christ­mas manger.
