Too much of a good thing?

Can you stand any more lamb pictures? I want to introduce you to the newest babies. Halley had this little ewe lamb (or skunk...not sure which) Thursday morning. I was hoping for another moorit gulmoget out of Halley, but we will take this little girl. She is such a little cutie. So far it looks like her fleece will be more intermediate.

This morning at three AM Lilly gave birth to black flecket twins-one ram, one ewe, which brings the count to 5 girls, three boys-go girls! This is the little ewe, her birth coat has very soft crimpy fleece.
And this is her super-hero twin brother complete with mask and cape (not an actual caped-flecket)....everything a boy needs to be a crime-fighting stud muffin...even a flashy smile. He also has very large horn buds, great fleece (so far), and he will have striped horns.
This ram lamb will definitely be for sale. My waiting list is filling fast and I don't have as many lambs as I had anticipated so if you are interested in anything please let me know so that I can match up lambies with new owners.

Oh my, that is the cutest skunk I have ever seen! What a doll!

I was thinking those interesting names were breeds, are they instead color patterns?

I often have a skunk on my deck at night, visiting the feeders. Skunks are lovely.

Thanks, Christine!

Hi Karen Anne, All of the sheep on my blog are Shetlands. The breed is ancient and was originally from the Shetland isles, so the names of the patterns and markings are old Norse names. One of my other readers asked that I put a key of some sort for reference on my blog, which I think is a great idea...when I am not so busy with babies! : )

What great markings. I love your black and white ram lamb. Almost wish you lived closer :) And the skunk marking is very cute.
