    • That is a very good question – a lot 🙂 That is one of my favorite things about lambing season. Remembering the names and who they go to is one of my odd talents. Now, you have me wondering…I will have to go count how many sheep we have named!

    • Thank you! There are speculations that there is a ‘brown’ gene in jacob sheep. Jacobs are dominant black based and have white spots. When they are crossbred to most breeds of sheep the dominant black overrides everything else and the lambs are solid black. I am hoping that breeding a brown ewe ‘Ursa’ to this brown looking jacob ram that we have we can either prove or disprove the speculation. I know I need a bigger cross section than this, but I have to start somewhere 🙂
