It's been a while since I've written anything here. The graduation open house that occupied all my time is history now and I've been enjoying the summer and the sheep.
Here's a photo of Geronimo, one of our 4 ram lambs born this year. He's so cute -- his face reminds me of a little burrow. His horns are pretty small compared to the other three ram lambs and he is unregisterable with NASSA, so we decided to wether him. He would make a wonderful fiber pet or companion for another sheep. He's a very friendly little guy and he's got a great crimpy fleece that will turn a cream color as he matures.
And this is the black BFL ewe lamb I will be getting from Brenda Lelli this summer. Isn't she gorgeous? I'm so excited to be adding her to my flock!
Here's a photo of our little Dot at just one day old. She found a nice shady spot to sleep while her mother grazed in the background - it was a hot day. She's getting so big already - two weeks old now. She makes a nuisance of herself with the older lambs who are now pretty interested in grazing rather than racing with her.
In the last photo, she's relaxing with her older half-sister Delia.
