While I was letting the sheep in today, I noticed that a lot of the ewe lambs have horns that are starting to appear. They are going to be thrilled…I won’t be catching them anymore to feel their horns. The boys’ horns can be felt at birth and can be seen shortly after, but it takes a little longer on the girls. I can usually tell how many horns the girls have, but it can be tricky to feel spacing on the 4-horn girls. If there isn’t sufficient space between the top horns and the side horns, then they can grow together and become fused…an undesirable trait. Luckily, these girls appear to have good spacing.
Pretty Felice is one of the oldest girls of this group. The side horns are hard to see through the hair, but they are feeling great.
Little Fanfare is just too cute for her own good. The polka dots on her nose are pigment filling in.
I love the little mark on Bountiful’s lower lip, it looks like she is smiling 😉
Banshee is a 2-horn.
Pizzazz has been dubbed the ‘class clown’ of this year’s lamb crop and she didn’t feel like posing for a picture today. She is continuously cracking me up…
For instance…check her out in this photo. Everybody else is running with their head up and she has her’s down charging ahead.
Daedal doesn’t have any horns showing yet, but she is an up and coming young lady and wanted to be included.
Carrera had two more girls yesterday.
Here is my son holding one of them, Isadora.
Twinkle is her other ewe lamb.
Precious is one of the last ewes to lamb. We weren’t sure if she was pregnant, but it is becoming very apparent that she is. My son is hoping she has a couple ewe lambs in there.
Sigh….thank you for the lamb race picture….I know that was just for me! Snow here in the valley north…..so the pics of sunshine and lambs was like a good cup of hot coffee. Love you!
I guess I need to borrow a kid so I can get cute kid (2-legged) and lamb photos like you and Joan have.
Beautiful pictures. Beautiful lambs.
