In this post, I shared with you the naming theme for this years’ lambs – cities in Oregon.
There were a couple funny names that were going to take a special lamb. One of the names was ‘Boring’.
He was born this morning…
Where are his spots???
Not up here…
and not back there.
His brother has lots of spots!
This isn’t a huge shock – his grandma had a lot of black wool.
I also know that a lamb that is too dark or a lamb that is too light can happen, especially with how many lambs we have (we are up to 44!!!).
The city name ‘Boring’ has always intrigued me – why would they name someplace ‘Boring’???
So, I did a little bit of research –
The community was named after W. H. Boring, an early resident of the area. Now that makes sense!
The unique name of the town often prompts its inclusion on lists of unusual place names.
The name ‘Boring’ is embraced by locals and is found in many local businesses, resulting in many road signs that seem humorous to outsiders.
The town uses the slogan “The most exciting place to live.”
This lamb is going to stand out in a pasture full of spotted lambs and needed a special name. I think this fits him nicely!
