Last lambs of the season

Sabrina had her lambs this morning. I thought she would lamb last night so I moved her to her own stall. Of course she had to wait until I gave up and put her back in with the others. Anyway they are two girls! After having only 1 ewe lamb last year I made up for it this year with 6 ewes and 2 rams.

This is RF Cara. It's a bad picture, but she is solid and a very dark moorit right now with a beautiful crimpy fleece. She weighed in at 6lbs.

This is RF Cheyenne and she is the strangest color we've ever had. She has a silver looking patch on her belly and I just love her facial markings. Very dark moorit right now like her sister. She also weighed in at 6lbs.

Unlike the very leggy Xavier who looks like he might go fawn like his momma

and Cinnamon

I'm incredibly happy with this years lambs. Now the fun of playing with them and watching them grow begins. Have a good weekend everybody.

  1. Congratulations on a ewe-heavy lamb crop! Cheyenne looks like she has sugar lips; does she? My Ag sheep have had the most unusual spots/markings/colors; such a shame they go away!
