I've noticed that over the past 2-3 days, I've earned the Yearling badge (earn 200 rep in a one-year period) at least 4-5 times, and just for this post. While I appreciate your appreciation ;-), I can't imagine that's working as intended.

Am I missing something?

All is good. You get one per year, as long as you have 200 times the number of years reputation. Therefore, suddenly happening upon a lot of rep can trigger multiple to be awarded around the same time. To repost the link you found: Details on how the Yearling badge works
