A rare set of sextuplet lambs have been born at a farm in Toller Porcorum near Dorchester. They arrived last week are still thriving.
Rorie Geddes, the owner of Colesmoor Farm, says, "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.
"She had been 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.”
