1. Endearing quaintness or oddity: the quality of being slightly odd or playfully humorous, especially in an endearing way.
2. Impulsive notion: an idea that has no immediately obvious reason to exist.
Whimsy is going to be our naming theme for our 2014 Lambs.
I think our sheep fall under this category very well 🙂
I have always loved the word ‘whimsy’ and it has been an integral part of my Felt Pups.
I want them to bring a smile everywhere they go.
I think you would agree that this little pup and his toy are oozing ‘whimsy’.
…as well as this little guy from last year.
Our first lambs for 2014 are due at the end of next week and I have been compiling a list of whimsical names. Naming the lambs is one of my favorite parts of lambing season and I am looking forward to doling out the names this year!
A few of my favorite girl names – Bellamy, Ophelia, Tallulah, and Reverie. Golly and Lolly may go to girls that are staying here to complete our collection of Holly, Dolly, and Folly 😉
Some of my favorite boy names on the list are – Whistler, Rhys, Lincoln, and Griffin. I’m sure I will know Hobbledehoy as soon as he is born!
Hopefully new lamb photos soon!
While taking the girls out to the pasture today, it really hit me that lambs will be here soon! We are down to 12 days.
Poor Avalon has another month of waiting…
this is what she thinks of the situation and these pictures 😉
Delight is one of the first girls on the line-up to lamb. She is also the only girl who Dalton bred. I am looking forward to seeing the lambs!
Susannah is another one that is due at the beginning. She was bred to Mac and this is a repeat breeding of one of my favorite crosses from last year.
Almost a third of the ewes are first timers this year. Banshee is one of them, she is due mid-January and was bred to Reno.
Quite a few of the girls are looking very big! Ailsa is one of them.
Starlet and Ailsa aren’t related, but look a lot alike! They finally cooperated with a side by side photo for me.
Unlike Ailsa, Starlet still has her svelte physique.
Azera is a content girl, chewing her cud and enjoying the sun.
I didn’t realize how big ‘little Sublimity’ was getting until I was looking at the photos. Thankfully she is due at the beginning and has less than 2 weeks to go. She was bred to Reno, this is a cross that has worked really well the last two years.
Flirt giving one of her typical ‘Flirt’ poses. Such a funny girl, she was bred to Mac.
Meara isn’t bred, but I had to include a photo of her because she is just so cute.
Lamb photos very soon!
