Even more fun, end of lambing.

Gypsy had her lambs on Thursday evening. Triplet ewe lambs. That brings the closing tally to 5 ewes and 4 rams. Here's the happy family group today I like this picture.

This is Dakota she weighed in at 5lbs and looks like she might be fawn.

This is the best picture picture I have of Diana in the back on the right who was a breach and weighed in at 4lbs. Her legs are still straightening out but she's doing well and has a very soft fleece probably moorit.

And this is Delia who was quite the surprise. She weighed in at 5lbs too and is so tall!

Here are some better pictures of Sabrina's triplets. This is the very handsome Winston.

The ever so cute Wilbur (he has little sideburns which I love).

And the tiny but perfect Dixie.

And just to show love to the other lambs here are William and Wallace who make me want to keep more rams. I just love both of these boys and their wonderful fleeces.

And Derry the lamb who started it all and looks like she will be modified like her mom and not black I think light grey. She is a very nice square girl.

Finally this is Marcus who is 8 weeks old today. He loves to play on his back and have his tummy rubbed, my partner calls him Cujo puppy when he looks like this lol.

Michelle you were the closet with your guess so can you email me your address so I can send you the sheep detective story :) Congratulations. I'm off to rest lol. Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. Cute!!!! who is derry's father?

  2. Two sets of triplets! WOW! Beautiful lambs, congrats.

  3. Mac Derry is by BluffCountry Dream Weaver and from RF Amelia. Thanks.

    Yes out of 4 ewes I got 9 lambs lol. Thanks Kara :)

  4. Oh, thank-you so much! I read so little any more, but I'm really looking forward to a fun romp!

    Why do you call Derry modified instead of Ag? Do you think she is an Ag who carries modified as well?

  5. What a full house you have, so fun. Congrats on a successful spring with lots of babies.

  6. You're welcome Michelle I hope you enjoy it I'll get it in the post to you this week. Ag is the fading gene right? Neither Amelia or Dreamer carry it, being so much older I think the greying is just her getting her coat color. Her mom is light grey, her fleece looks grey to emsket when parted. Dixie on the other hand is Ag and showed the sugar lip appearance within a day of birth. Otherwise she would be moorit but now will fade. I think that's right but am reasonably new to this that I could be wrong lol.

    Alex yes we are full in the barn (and the house lol) but it sure is a lot of fun.

  7. You're correct on Ag being the "fading" pattern. Both Dixie and Derry to me show the classic head spotting and sugar lips of Ag. Some Ag sheep retain more color than others; not all of them fade to a basically white body.

  8. Nice lambs! I have never had triplets so I can only imagine your excitment! Can't wait to see more of that puppy too;)

  9. Amazing lamb lineup, and wonderful picture of mom with triplets. How nice for you!

  10. Thank you Kristi (more puppy pictures soon I am sure!) and Gail thanks I am very happy with this years lamb crop again.
