Today was a beautiful sunny day. All of the lambs got a chance to get out into the pasture and try out those new little legs.
This is Lovey with her boys.
...and of course Daisy's boy.
Lilly and her little GIRL.
Willow's little cutie.

Anyone need a ram?
Wednesday, April 25, 2007
Hey, White Chicken, did you see?
They had another one of those fuzzy things.
Hey you guys, be quiet!
I kind of like their fleece.
This is #3, I know, I know, still no names. He is Willow's ram lamb born on Sunday morning. Right now his markings are very striking, but he will most likely be grey like his dam. His fleece looks to be more of a dense double coat like his mom's also.

This little cutie is Crosswinds #2 lamb....yeah, I know we need to think of some names. Her dam is Sommarang Dolly "Lilly". Lilly belongs to my sister who lives in town, so Lilly stays here with us. Baby # 2 is a moorit yuglet flecket ( dark brown spots and eye patches) with her daddy's crimpy soft fleece. She arrived at 1:30 yesterday afternoon. I thought, GREAT, beautiful warm day, delivery in the daylight, perfect! It was a relatively easy delivery for a first time mom and she did a great job. Wonderful, everyone is done for a couple days...according to my calendar....until, doing my evening check on everyone. Hmmmm, uh oh, why does Willow look all "poochy" in her nether region? For you non-sheepy folk "nether region" is not technical sheepy term....I digress. At 4 a.m. this morning Willow presented me with a very handsome ram lamb, who's picture this blog is not letting me post for some reason. I will post some pictures later. According to my calendar, I should be able to get some sleep tonight

Hey girls, have you heard the news?
Daisy had her baby!
This is Sommarang Daisy one of our friendliest ewes, anxiously awaiting her new arrival. She was bred to Bluff Country Rock Star our moorit/flecket ram, he also has a great temperament and GORGEOUS fleece.
Here is Crosswinds lamb #1
This is our black and white yuglet/flecket ram lamb. He was born around 3:30 this morning, luckily uneventfully, and I am happy to report that mother and baby are happy and healthy. I will post more pictures later, after this very tired shepherd gets some rest and gets a better idea of how to use this blog.....arghhhh!
