Last week Minwawe Skippy, a smirslet fawn ewe from Peeps that I got last year as a lamb, gave me a very feminine black krunet ewe lamb out of Barish.
Today I checked Slipper and Kit Kat (the only two left to lamb) and there was nothing...I was for sure KK would lamb but when I came out to fill mineral tubs this afternoon I noticed slipper had a bag of blood sticking out...you know....the kind that comes out AFTER the lamb and BEFORE the placenta is expelled!? I couldn't find the lamb!!!! Here he was already having jugged himself and waiting for him momma's milk! I quickly got her in the jug with him and he appeared to be moorit....upon his drying off more...he is defintely KATMOGET and smirslet AND flecket! how cool is that!! Talk about saving the best for last! I was bummed it was a boy, but I already have a home for him so I am very happy about that!
As soon as Kit Kat lambs I'll be posting my stats for the year...a very LONG year of lambing...over TWO MONTHS!
I've also added a few more photos of lambs for the fun of it. Indulge with me :)

Love-E-Ewe Cleo. Black iset ewe. She is sold.
I sat on a pail in their night pen and just sat. Almost immediately I was surrounded by familiar and not so familiar faces. I had about a dozen lambs crowding around me, jumping on my lamb, nibbling on my coat, asking to be pet and some just curious.
I had over a dozen EWES vying for my attention and affection, some familar like Cleo, Cori, Kershope (a BFL), Maya, Buttons, a few new comers like Layla, Chloe, and Peep and a few new surpsrises...a few from Mary Ellen, Bejig and Miracle...and even Shasta came up to be loved. With all those girls to be scratched I had some very dirty hands (lanolin) to be scrubbed when I got in to the house......
They must know that many of them are leaving next week for their new home at a petting zoo. What a perfect life...spoiled rotten by kids and fed some good stuff! I'm very happy for them and nearly ready to cry. I know they are LIVESTOCK and not pets, but they have stolen my heart and I'm forever grateful to them for letting me take care of them and repaying me with healthy lambs, soft gorgeous fleece, and every once in a while, a sigh or deep breath when I'm scratching them........ g'nite ya'll.
