I always enjoy visiting Tammy’s farm and my son LOVES to see her and her animals.
I had just talked to her about coming to see her new lambs, but we hadn’t set up a time. Circumstances made for an unplanned visit yesterday!
This little (big) guy was the reason for the unplanned visit. Tammy was in town teaching a class and her son was home and noticed that the ewe was having problems. A couple calls later I was on my way down to see if I could help. He is a big lamb and the ewe had managed to get him most of the way out, he just needed a little help making it the rest of the way. I’m glad it was a fairly minor problem and it gave us a good excuse to see the rest of her lambs.
Tammy has Jacob, Katahdin, and Blueface ewes. She crossed them all with this handsome guy…
He is a Blueface ram
and has a beautiful fleece!
This angelic lamb is a Blueface x Katahdin ewe lamb
and this is her adorable sister.
These two are natural colored Blueface ram lambs.
This girl is a real beauty
and this is her handsome brother.
I had fun watching the lambs play and interact with the chickens.
My son’s favorite part was this goat. I’m not sure why she thought his head tasted good, but that’s a goat for you 🙂
I love this picture!
On our way home, we saw a bunch of wild turkeys and this guy let me take his picture. A great afternoon!
I want a blue face! They are the perfect story book sheep… So stinkin’ cute! 😀 I really like the tan ewe lamb with the cute spots on her nose… Too much. 😉
I love the blueface breed! I like only having one breed, but if I had two the second breed would definitely be the blueface 🙂
So much fun to see the new lambs, no matter what the breed, they’re all beautiful! Your son looks pretty happy with that goat, perhaps a couple of goats in your future?
I have never noticed the Blueface sheep before, they are cute! What adorable babies. And of course the goat likes licking the short bristly hair of another “kid” !
I have only had Shetlands, but the Blue Face are quite nice sheep. A friend in Bend had them and I really admired them. Nice fleece too. Oh, Shannon, my friend with the Jacobs is named Val. Can’t think of her last name yet. It may or may not come. 🙂
