It has been a month since these pretty faces have been in our pasture, but it seems just like yesterday that they arrived!
They are all California girls and I think they have enjoyed the move to the valley of green :)
There are 4 new girls and 3 of them are lambs. From left to right - Viola, Pansy, and Trinity.
Viola is a 4-horn lilac ewe lamb (Kenleigh’s Tristan x Castle Rock Aphrodite) from Joan at Mud Ranch. I had originally picked out a couple ewe lambs from pictures online, but had the opportunity to see them in person at the end of April and fell in love with her. She brings blood lines from the East Coast that are new for us.
This is Pansy, also from Mud Ranch. She has big shoes to fill because her mom is one of my favorites. Her mom is Kenleigh’s Paisley and I knew she was special the moment I saw her. I still enjoy seeing her on my visits to Joan’s house and this year she had a ewe lamb that reminded me a lot of her. I am very happy that Pansy has come to live here!
Trinity is from Meridian Jacobs and also brings some new blood lines for us. Her sire is Sweetgrass Clint.
The three young ones were chaperoned by Susannah. She is another Mud Ranch girl and another wide 2-horn ewe to add to my collection. Since she has been here, I have found myself singing ‘Oh! Susannah’ on more than one occasion :)
Love her horns!
