"Princess Kate" has twins at Ariah Park

The Land 25/7/2013

PRINCESS Kate of Ariah Park - a Border Leicester ewe owned by Meg Schmidt of Retallack stud - has gone one better than the Duchess of Cambridge and produced twins.
While the third in line to the throne was delivered on Tuesday morning, the delivery at Ariah Park - just as eagerly awaited by Meg - happened at about 7pm on Tuesday night.
Meg Schmidt, 12, (pictured with her prized ewe) is co-principal of Retallack Border Leicesters and was shown at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show at Bendigo, Victoria, on the weekend where she was expected to lamb any time.
However, the woolly princess managed to hold off its labour on the six hour trip home from in the truck from Bendigo to Ariah Park to coincide her progeny's arrival on the same day as the Duchess.
While the world's media waited for the first glimpse of the future king, Meg's year six classmates at St Anne's
Primary School, Temora, were most excitedly awaiting Princess Kate of Ariah Park's newborns.
The lambs included a ram, which Meg has named George, and she is leaning towards the name Diana for the ewe lamb.
According to Meg's grandfather Graham Grinter both Princess Kate and her lambs are doing well and are now down the paddock with mum grazing.
The ewe's next public appearance will be at this year's Melbourne Royal Show in September.
