Two lambs were born Thursday night to “Shorty,” a two-year-old Katahidin sheep at Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead.

The births come just in time for this weekend’s annual “Fleece and Fiber Fair” set for May 17 and 18 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Sound Avenue farm.

The fair highlights crafts made with animals fibers and features demonstrations and workshops.

Admission is $5 or free for children under 12.

Fairgoers will be able to see Shorty and her precious babies.
