I put most of the lambs and ewes (except Trillium and her new babes) out in the pasture for the first time today. After the initial minutes of utter confusion, babies following the wrong sets of legs and getting a stern correction in the form of a head butt from a mom trying to find her own babies, followed by a noisy chorus of moms and babies calling back and forth to each other, everyone finally found the right family groups and settled in to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and green grass.
I am finally getting to see some of the personalities coming out in these little fuzz balls.
The moorit lamb is very sweet and likes to stay close to Lovey.
Little black ewe lamb is a real clown.
"Look at me aren't I cute?"
Apparently she has restless leg syndrome.
"Seriously, Sis, you are making a fool of yourself!"
This is Willow's ram lamb #1...oh, I need some names!!
He looks as though he will be grey....no sugar lips as of yet. He does have a spotted tongue, so there are spots there too.
REALLY nice fleece and conformation.
Okay, he was peeing when I took this picture, it's hard to get these guys to stay still!
And he is an excellent retriever. The boys will both be for sale as well as Trilliums ram lamb. I haven't decided on the girls yet....
Except this one, she will be staying. Her fleece is insanely soft and crimpy :).
Maybe I will have more pictures tomorrow...it is an addiction you know, I have a camera and I have lambs, I can't help it.
