Just spent 15 minutes deciding on name theme for this year's lambs. I'm not sure about naming the boys... if so they will be coconut, sesame, and salt.
Cinnamon formerly known as Socks saying hi to Hera.

@purplequeenvt Can you tell me who you order tags from? Premier1 sells imprinted as in sheets of 20 or $2.50 each. Do you mean the QFlex 1.5?

For the little lambs so far, I'm using the blue marking stick from Tractor Supply. It's working good. I have blue mohawk, blue tail, and blue butt. LOL

So Mocha got a down check on mothering abilities today. She and Misty ran out with rest of ewes when I let them out to graze around 11am after rain stopped. After a few minutes Misty started calling for Vanilla and came back to shed looking for her. Perfectly acceptable in first time mom.

Mocha on the other hand kept on heading farther away without answering babies. After about 15min, I caught her by collar and took her back to shed. She was not amused and babies were frantic. She's earned another couple days shed only.

Yes, the Qflex 1.5 from Premier1. I get blank tags and write the lambs name on the tag. My sister bought a laser printer last year so now I can custom print directly on the tags so they don’t fade out like the marker does.
