The lambs are Comin'

The first LittleRedOak Shetland lambs arrived on Thursday.  Highland Hollows Bluebell led off the season with twins, a musket (oatmeal/brown) ram and a white ewe lamb.  Timed nicely for late morning arrival.  Emily called it; saw Bluebell acting funny at 7 am, put her in a jug, let the other ewes out to pasture and went off to school.  Lambs arrived 3 hours later.
Twin Brooks Palisade delivered a brown ram and black ewe lamb at 4 am last night;  Not tonight, I hope,  I'd rather sleep!   Here, Bluebell's boy greets Pal's through the lambing jug panels. Healthy babies, all, and moms are doing fine. The dad to these four lambs is Kimberwood Leonardo, my smooth-polled (hornless) moorit ram.  No evidence of horns on these newborns, but it's too early to guess about that, yet.

Fabulous lambs! That white ewe lamb is a little fairy. Hope you get some rest tonight.

Awww, so cute! I hope your boys are polled. Can't wait to see your Finn lambs too.
