Four

Four lambs in the picture.
These four are not THE four. They are two sets of twins. Among their small flock two sets of quadruplets were born. The first set were staying in the shed near the heat lamp the day I visited. The second set were not born yet at the time. (One did not make it.)
I tried to find out the likelihood of quadruplet lambs, but apparently it depends on the breed. Most usually have single births or twins, so two sets of quads in one small flock seems to be unusual.
TnChick's blog is home to PhotoHunt. Visit her to find other interpretations of four.

They must be close to you to keep such track of them. I like sheep from a distance.

I love lambs! I collect them but not the living kind like these! LOL

Lovely lambs! Our goats produced triplets one year - difficult, as they have just two teats!
