I’ve got my eyes on ewe

This ewe — owned by Marble Falls Police Chief Mark Whitacre and his wife Bonnie — gave birth to a set of quadruplets two weeks ago — quite a rarity for a sheep, according to the experts. Mark Whitacre says the four are actually sets of twins that developed from two separate embryos. All four of the lambs are healthy, as is the mother … though she’s a bit tired, Whitacre said.
