We had two more lambs born today. Oh the coincidence… The ewe had twins, the first was a ram. And that would be the fourth lamb born here. The second lamb born was our first ewe. Just like our first girl was child number five.
All is well, and the babies and mom seem to be doing very well, these lambs are a mix between our babydoll Southdown rams and our new Shetland ewes. They will be a small breed, and I’m not sure on the quality of their wool. I think the Shetlands have decent wool, but the babydoll South Downs don’t have exceptional wool. So here are some photos of the new family. Yes, both lambs are black.
Oh, and here is the ewe that is bursting. Her belly sometimes drags on the ground she’s so big. Hopefully those babies are on the way soon. It’s time to go move sheep.
