7 days, 20 lambs, 0 sleep

Everyone is doing well at around a week old though! Ten rams and ten ewes. I have a handful more that I bought late that will be lambing next month but this is most of them. Forgive the cell phone pictures, I figured blurry pictures were better than no pictures. I live on a migratory path so I keep the lambs in until they're a little bigger and eagles aren't traveling through.

Jacobs were named after apple varieties this year. Cormos are always desserts.

Holly- teeny ewe lamb Hellebore x Monty


Apollo and Admiral- ram lambs Aster x Monty


Fortune (aka big beef)- ram lamb Daphne x Monty


Irish- he's basically a giraffe Indigo x Ashe


Carolina- ewe lamb Clementine x Monty


Monarch and Melba- Ram/ewe twins Mimosa x Monty



Chiffon and Suzette the cormos from Jaffa and Eclair x Paczki


Jester and Jubilee- ram/ ewe twins Jewel x Ashe


Spartan- ram lamb Sicily x Ashe


Keepsake and Kent (aka woolly bear aka fuzzy wuzzy)- Ewe/ram twins Katelyn x Ashe


Duchess and Dulcet- ewe twins Daisy x Monty


Pacific (aka big blue)- ram lamb Pansy x Ashe


Rosette (back) and Rival (front)- ewe/ram twins Reba x Ashe


Need to focus the flock this year so I'm hoping to sell some small flocks and breeding trios. I love my ladies but I have so many!

I love them! We just got two jacobs although I have no idea the genders and can’t get close enough to find out. I have a hunch the one may be preggy tho!

They're funny sheep, you'll either love them or hate them! Usually you can tell if they're rams or ewes from their horns but wethers can have ewe-like horns.

I figured we could all use some spotty lamb pictures.

Fortune


Holly, she is so much trouble! Into everything all the time.


Keepsake inherited her mom's Crazyface (tm). The bright blue eyes don't help.


Her brother Kent didn't miss out on it either.


Jubilee just looks pleased with herself


Jester is the stoic type


Carolina constantly has something in her mouth




Irish is also Trouble and I spend a lot of time yelling at him to get out of hay feeders. Also Carolina is in the background with another piece of straw sticking out of her mouth


Rival is so handsome! He might have a breeding home lined up.


His sister Rosette is lovely too.


This is Big Betty's daughter Big Bess


And her boy Beacon


Wendigo's boy is the babiest of the jacob babies and doesn't have a name yet. He's been alive for 6 days now and they've all been exhausting.

I'm pretty sure this is the last lamb of the year. Two other cormo ewes were marked but don't have any udder development. Cormos are weird about breeding :idunno

So with this 11 lb 11 oz cormo girl we're up to 26 lambs, 2 goat kids with a 50:50 boy/girl split.


Got updated pictures of all the spotty ones too. Split into two posts because its a lot of lambs.

Holly


Admiral


Apollo


Fortune




Irish


Carolina


Monarch


Melba


Jester


Jubilee


Spartan
