Lighting has struck for a third time at a Laporte sheep farm.

For the third year in a row quadruplet lambs have been born. Sadie the ewe is nursing her second foursome. She gave birth to quads in 2010. Last year she slacked off - only giving birth to triplets.


Frank and Debra Vogeltanz are as thunderstruck as anyone over their embarrassment of riches.

"I didn't believe we'd have quads again," Debra said last week.
