I didn’t have a lot of time to take pictures yesterday, I pretty much got home grabbed my gear and ran off to shoe a friends horses. But I did take a minute to handle the little black lamb and it’s a ram so we’re at 1-1. My boy asked what we’re going to call them so I call them Ebony and Ivory. My wife got a kick out of that and I had to show my boy a YouTube video so he got the joke
A few days later they’re looking good. I thought Ivory was all white and the dark was just some mud but it turns out she’s got a big brown spot. And their coats are so different, Ivory has a curly wooly coat and Ebony has a slick hair coat. The black lambs last year were the same way, slick black hair coats. I wonder if the genetic trait for hair or wool from the parents is linked to the coat color?
