last Fall. He hasn't been used yet. All lambs born this year came from Osmo (Finns) and Parker (Shetlands), and a borrowed black gulmoget, Kimberwood Harrison, to use on half the Shetland ewes. (Oops, update: a few came from the Finn ram lamb, now called Paavo.)
These photos were taken last week. Editing photos takes time, in between helping new lamb moms. Here's poor Minwawe November, who STILL hasn't lambed. Poor, poor dear.
Below are Lassi the Finn girl's quads, just as they leave the safe barnyard for the first time. They are following Lassi closely. Lassi can't get at the fresh grass fast enough. Ample udder for these babes; we haven't supplemented them at all.
Below, the Finn moms and babies are relaxing a bit. Black lambs are Kora's, of course, and the brown ones are Lassi's. So skinny, aren't those Finn babies?
Here's Boston Lake Niav with her sturdy little Shetland lambs. Her ewe lamb looks like her, her boy is all black.
Finn lambs in a scuffle! This made me laugh-- they are so young, but instincts are already there! They are both ewe lambs.
More pictures when I have more time. Taking deposits on lambs, by the way!
