Two New Ewes!!

Felicia was due to lamb over the weekend. She was one of the few breedings I saw, and could somewhat plan for. Two beautiful ebony black ewe lambs! Sire is our black yearling Grady.Sizes were perfect--6 and 7 lb. Ewe lambs rarely have large horn buds, so delivery is so much easier on mom. Delivery was swift and easy. The girls were lively and nursing in no time. I love black lambs, and have way too many black adults. Who knew that black came in so many shades? From charcoal, to ebony, inky, raven, steel, pewter, gun metal, ashen, chocolate, cocoa, grey...the list runs on and on. Felicia is another first time mom, and doing a wonderful job!

That is wonderful!! I just love the color! Have you named them yet?

Makes me sad I did not get any bought back in December! This fall. This fall.

We try to name the lambs something similar to their momma, but with twins, try to relate their names in some way, just so we can remember! So, Felicia's girls will be Helena and Helen.
