At the beginning of breeding season, my son picked 3 ewes to breed to his ram, Reno. He did a great job picking the girls and the lambs are beautiful!
The first born was Echo and she is really friendly!
Here she is with her mama, Petunia.
These pretty girls were born this morning. You can really see the difference between the lilac in the front and the black in back.
The mom is almost solid lilac in color, but both lambs have wonderful coloring. The ideal jacob sheep coloring is 40% black/lilac and 60% white.
The lilac girl has the cutest little elf ears…
and the black girl has the cutest spot on the back of her head.
So far, this girl is friendly too.
He has one ewe left to lamb and he is really hoping for some boys. He asked me if I would trade him a boy for a girl if he doesn’t have any! He is working on a name for his flock.
a picture of me!!!!
I never have pictures of myself. My son is old enough that he can handle the camera 🙂 YAY!!! Paisley is still the cutest lamb ever.
These lambs are a very close second!
We have 14 lambs – 3 boys and 11 girls with more on the way very soon.
