Scoreboard: 28 single births, 44 sets of twins, 17 sets of triplets, no quadruplets yet.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

  6. Wow! Lambing sure is in full swing. Cute little lambs. 🙂

  7. Cute capture! I wonder why the little lambs have two different color.

  8. Sheep, like cats, often have multiple mates, resulting in different colored lambs. I see a black sheep of the family emerging! Love the little guy standing on Mom!

  9. Woah, 44 sets of twins and 17 triplets! Are those lamb breeders using fertility drugs or what?!

    The lambs are adorable, Bo.
