Minnesota has had gray, wet skies all month, making lamb photography unpleasant. They're growing fast now, so I'd better get old photos up and new ones, soon .
During this rainy weather, I started a new "group" on Facebook called Finnsheep in America. Check it out if you are a Facebook time-waster, er, "fan", like me!

|This is LRO 25360 Sukka's ram lamb (twin), from my black badgerfaced Stillmeadow ram FBA no. 24898 . Great wool, great everything. I love both of his parents. Sukka is FBA no. 25360 . Obviously, he carries a brown gene. He's developing beautifully and is friendly. The Stillmeadow ram (we call Toivo) is QR (1/2 scrapie resistant) so this lamb may be, too.|
|Faithful, friendly Kimi-- TRP 20-- has quad lambs following everywhere.|
2 boys, 2 girls, only one girl spoken for. The lambs' dad was brown-- LRO Lanni, FBA no. 26147 .
|3 of four Kimi lambs chillin'. The ewe lamb at left is Coin, the other two are ram lambs. All are for sale.|
|Little Red Oak Anthea, "Annie" the Shetland, with her brown ram and|
gulmoget ewe lambs, meet Spot the Finn lamb for the first time.
|Annie's lambs, brand new. The boy is for sale and looks nice. Sired by River Oaks Ciro.|
|LRO Nappylainen, Finnsheep, lets Frowsy the ewe lamb nurse. Frowsy is available. Frowsy (twin) has funny puppy dog fur, which will later be replaced by fine, adult wool. She had a 1/2 sister like this last year-- whose beauty was that her wool was SO SOFT and coal black when sold at 5 months, I wished I'd kept her. Sired by FBA no. 26148 , LRO Sulev.|
|We gave some stored hay to our shearer. I thought it was fun to be up in the "attic" of this little barn.|
|Black Katmoget Shetland son of LittleRedOak Nina & River Oaks Ciro. He looks|
great but has small scurs, indicating one horned and one polled gene.
|Lassi, brown Finn ewe had quads, but only these two made it. The Bling Brothers, both headed for Missouri.|
