Here they are at birth last night.
Rhyn did a super job. Unlike her past three deliveries, she let the babies nurse right away. And they latched on quickly. For now I'm calling them Big Rita and Little Rita, reminiscent of two Ritas in our church when I was growing up. They were sister-in-laws, the tall one was called Big Rita and the shorter one Little Rita. Gosh, wouldn't it be awful to be known as Big (insert your name here)? But the names seemed to fit these two since I always use R names with Rhyn's lambs. If I offer them sale after weaning (I have enough natural colored BFL ewes) the buyers can choose proper names.
