It has been brought to my attention that I did not introduce the lambies that are in our new header photo. Ooops.......
It's been a fantastic lambing season for us and lambing has concluded for this year. Twenty one lambs....10 ewes and 11 rams, no loss of ewes or lambs. We have a new ewe that came to live here a couple of weeks ago that may lamb at the end of the month. Of course, all are adorable and I want to keep them all at this point. As time goes by, I will have to make some tough choices as I have 55 sheep! Yikes - funny how they add up so quickly at lambing time :)
We initially were going to use the Greek/Roman God theme but everyone decided it didn't suit us. We then decided to use the first letter of each ewe's name.
Pennyroyals twins: Peggy and Patsy (1/2 shetland / 1/2 finn)
Daphne's twins: Dillon & Dalton (1/2 shetland/ 1/2 finn)
Pheobe's twins: Paige & Parson (3/4 Finn/1/4 Coop)
Wrens twins: Wallace & Winnie (3/4 Finn 1/4 Coop)
Bella's single: Bridget (Coopworth/Finn)
We had two sets of ram lambs born in the last two days. Coopworth/Finn and Shetland /Finn. They are still in the jugs and I haven't taken photos yet. Chammomille is still the maternity ward with her quads. Tomorrow is supposed to be a gorgeous day - they will all go out in the sunshine tomorrow and we will clean out the jugs for another year.
Enjoy! Anyone want to buy a lamb?
ps.....in the header photo is Parson, Wallace & Winnie.
