Lambs, lambs, lambs
First, I love this-- it looks like Holstein cows grazing on our flat Minnesota pastures-- only it's two spotted Finnsheep. Mom, Kora, is on the right and daughter Nappylainen is on the left. Both produced lambs this past week. Kora had mostly-black twins, a boy and girl, big and healthy-- and Nappy produced a big healthy ram lamb. Hers has more spottedness-- but nothing like the moms' spots. First year Finns often have singles, but after that, it's twins, triplets, quads, and sometimes, more.
