There was a little miracle in Mayo last night as a sheep defied odds of a million to one to give birth to 5 lambs!

Mayo is turning into a real fertile place this breeding season! Earlier this month, a vet in Charlestown, Sarah Higgins, got in touch with us to share her story about triplets being born to the one cow!

Well, another miracle happened last night in Ballycastle Co Mayo as a sheep defied odds of a million to one to give birth to five lambs!

Robert Tighe got in touch with Thatsfarming.com last night to share his story!

He started off by saying "I've being farming for 14 years and never have I seen the likes!"


He went on to tell me the story of how it all unfolded:
"I was feeding a pet lamb from a set of triplets and i heard 3 lambs bleating like mad! I finshed feeding the lamb and to my surprise, I seen 3 lambs suckling the same sheep(who was to have 3). So i put the sheep into a pen by herself and I checked her for any more lambs to be safe! To my surprise there was another and then another and she ended up with 5!


Robert went on to tell us that they are all healthy at the minute but he was going to say a few prayers overnight!
