A farmer from Monmouthshire has had an unbelievable experience after one of her sheep gave birth to six be-ewe-tiful, healthy, lively lambs.

 

April Rymer, from Caldicot, Monmouthshire, said while there has had a few multi-births on the farm this year, not all the lambs survived.

 

She said: "The ewe is a four-year-old Cambridge cross Texel ewe who gave birth on February 26, 2016.

 

"She is still a healthy ewe considering her age and did very well during the birth of her six lambs.

 

"Some of our sheep have given birth to seven lambs, but sadly, not all survived.

 

"We thought six live lambs was a very high number so we were wondering whether this makes a record for the lambing season of 2016?"
