    Working on getting two black 2yr twinning ewes in June! No pics of them until I go get them.

    What a whirlwind of a year!
    All currently born lambs are now sold, most are rams and 3 of them just got a new home, together! :D
    So awesome that the boys found great homes so easily!

    And I caved, here are pictures the breeder sent me of the two new ladies!
    Also, I'm so slow! I forgot to ask for their names. =0
    They are 18-20in or so. So double the "little ladies" for these gals! Lolla won't be the only shorty around!

    Ugh, clearly I can't even copy numbers down right! =/

    Rams were removed on November 30th. So the very latest date for a lamb to arrive is May 7th.
    ...unless I'm having yet another brainfart...lol

    Your lambs have kissable faces. I just love their expressions!

    They're faces are exceptionally soft, perfect for kissing!
