So, where did we leave off? Oh, yes. Sheepy Hollow Lovey x Firth of Fifth Avyt had a set of twin ram lambs on Tuesday. Both boys are very dark moorit (brown for my non-sheepie friends) and have very nice crimpy fleece and very nice conformation. Both carry spots. These boys will be for sale (pending evaluations).
Edrea's ewe lamb, sporting a lovely uni brow.
Aaaand, for whatever reason, I don't seem to have a picture of the rammy.
Yesterday morning Willow delivered.....remember big Willow?
What did she have in there, you might ask?
She had a ram lamb. As in singular. As in ONE. Lamb. A lamb.
Not even a huge lamb....just one.
He is ag grey with the most wonderful fleece. He also has nice conformation, although he is standing funny here-it was his first few minutes outside.
I am waiting for the vet to call so I can get some oxytocin for Willow, she has not expelled all of her placenta and it has been 24 hours so we need to get some contractions going. I think her voluptuous size gave her a little trouble in the muscle contraction department. I don't want to take any chances on infection so she will get some antibiotics as well. I'm thinking that maybe a diet is in order after weaning.
Now for some gratuitous lamb photos.
Cassie and her girls...or, one and a half of her girls..the other is hiding behind her.
Daisy's ram and ewe....I don't know what is going on with her fleece...I hope it is just birth-coat cause she is looking a little poodle-esque.
Laurel's boys. I love, love, love, these guys. Not for sale at this time.
Stay tuned, Lilly has something planned soon...I think.
