RE: It rained

Nope, but we will if it looks necessary. Mom's got what looks like
plenty of capacity, all 3 of them are getting about equal time, and we
had one ewe raise triplets last year without needing to supplement. So
we'll just watch for now.  
I hope it works this time too, because teaching them to switch back and
forth from a bottle to a teat is pretty frustrating.

I hope you're bottle feeding one of the lambs. Momma's only got two
teats and the lambs get pretty aggressive about making one exclusively
their own.
