Snowball and Rainstorm, our first two ewes, just hours after they arrived here on Dec. 16, 2001. Snowball was a ewe lamb, 1/2 Shetland, 1/4 Border Leicester and 1/4 Finn. She became our flock leader, you can see she was already stomping her foot even then.
Rainstorm was a three year old, purebred Shetland. She delivered twin ewe lambs in April the next year. What a thrill that was! That's when I realized that Christmas comes several times a year with Shetlands -- at shearing and lambing too, not just in December. :-)
