This is a quick lambing update before things get any crazier here.
We had one lamb born last night. One GIANT ram lamb.
I thought Ashumet was expecting twins, but last night she gave birth to this single, practically full grown, ram lamb. Of course that is an exaggeration, but he is huge. Poor girl had a hard time getting this one out, and to make matters worse for her, he also has large horn buds, so I am sure mama is feeling a little sore today.
Black, yuglet gulmoget.
Mama Llama is doing her quality control inspection.
I'm not sure what to think of his fleece yet, but his purse is very crimpy. Time will tell.
Sommarnag Ivar is the sire to this ram lamb, as well as the rest of the lambs that are due. I leased him from my friends Craig and Cindy Bowser at Whispering Winds Farm. I should get lots of spots and great horns!
Off to do a barn check!
Good looking baby and love the head on that ram!!!!
wow, he is big ...... and so handsome
Wow! What a flashy "little" fellow! Those are huge horn buds.....makes me think our little guy will have scurrs like his Da.
That third photo had me tearing up x
Love your photos, Corrinne! Theresa has referred me to you on a technical ram horn question--the ram I bought from her last August and whom we bred to several of our ewes was out of Crosswinds Pegasus. How can I email you? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org could just fire me one and I'll write you back.
