I was recently asked how many sheep we have named. I didn’t have a clue what the answer was! Of course, this question piqued my curiosity, so I counted and the total is 234!
Cypress was the first lamb we named.
This also got me thinking about the naming theme for the 2011 lambs.
Naming the lambs is something I really enjoy and I love putting together a list of names before the lambs start arriving. Well it is time to get my act together because the first lambs are due to arrive on January 4th. With how the time is flying, that day is going to be here very soon!
We used city names in Oregon for 2010 and I wanted to use a variation of this for 2011, so I am going to use river/stream/lake/creek names. The Oregon Atlas is full of fun names!
This boy also has a new name. I had a hard time calling him Albus, so he is now Ringo. His registered name is going to be Blue Ewe’s Ringoes Albus. Ringoes was the city in New Jersey where the AGM was held and where we picked him up. Ringo has a nice ring to it 🙂
You can see the whole breeding line-up, including pictures – here
Wow! Shannon, Albus (Ringo) is looking great! Can’t wait to see the Freedom/Shadrach lambs for 2011!
Thanks for getting us thinking. We have to figure out names for our coming lambs as well.
I loved the pictures in the “breeding lineup.”
What pretty Jacobs you have. I worked with Jacob wool a lot this past year; lovely stuff.
Thanks Leslie! Jacob wool is lovely stuff 🙂
