Outstanding in their field: Trina, a 3-year-old Finnsheep, stands with her unusually large brood of seven 2 1/2-week-old lambs in a field at the home of their owner, Colleen Peck, on Thursday in Snoqualmie, Wash. Finnsheep, a breed of domestic sheep known for multiple births, commonly give birth to up to five lambs. The healthy septuplets, including four boys and three girls, are fed both by their mother and a supplemental formula hand-fed by Peck. American Finnsheep Breeders’ Association acting secretary Herb Tucker said such a feat has only been recorded twice in the United States.
