The birth of Faye's ram brought a much needed ray of sunshine to our otherwise dismal week. It wasn't an easy birth. Faye is a two winter ewe, but this was her first lamb. He was a big boy at 9.5 lb., and it was a struggle getting him out, but at least he was facing the right direction! Singles are nice, because they grow out so well, but they can be impossibly large at birth. A pair of 7 lb. lambs is so much easier on the the mother than a 10 lb. ram with large horn buds. This guy is a big chunk, much like his father Finn. He looks to be white with some spotting on his legs. We haven't decided on a name for him yet. Faye is a wonderful, attentive first time momma. Such a sweet sight.
