She is out of Sheltering Pines Mirabile Visu and Sommarang Gilroy.
Last year I got a fine-fleeced gulmoget ewe lamb from this same pairing, and I was kind of hoping for another gulmoget, but this little girl is lovely. She looks like she will likely have intermediate fleece like her mom. She already stands nice and square and has a tiny little Shetland tail. Her sire is spotted so she is a spot carrier.
She is already very friendly like her dam..OK, so all of my sheep are friendly, whatever.
....and very energetic! I can't wait until she has a few friends to join her for the lamb races.
BOING! BOING! BOING!
In case you are wondering why 'she' doesn't have a name yet...as usual, I have been slacking and not chosen a theme for names....'cause it's not like I've had the last FIVE months to think about it or anything...
More updates later!
Congradulations!! At least you have a lamb so the wait for more is not as painful! She is adorable!! Are you keeping her?
Congrats on your new baby! I found your site yesterday while googling "Quad City sheep". My 4 yr old daughter LOVES lambs/sheep and I was trying to find a place we could visit where she could see them in person. Do you ever have visitors out to your farm to see the sheep? We will keep checking your blog and hope that you have many more healthy new lambs! Thank you for posting all the pictures!
She is lovely! Well worth the wait. Congratulations on the start of the best season of the year!
Yeah! She is adorable. I know what you mean about tornados and going out to the barn. That's where I usually am during severe weather too. Hope all goes well--weather and babies.
She is soo cute. Congrats!!
congrats on starting with a ewe lamb! may all the rest be girls...except for my little HST ram lamb. ;-)
She may be the only one, but she's a looker! Can't wait to see the rest of your babies.
beautiful baby! Keep 'em coming.
