Another ewe!!

I've got this thing down Penni! I had just finished cursing the vacuum out and stormed to the barn to find Lucy and Lambo in the midst of lambing so I decided to try my luck and run to Subway (just a quick 8 miles each way) for supper....and had just got home, changed into my barn clothes and went out to see the girls and feed them their evening meal. There was FirthofFifth Evidence of Autumn in labor! She was SO dramatic....I had to keep telling myself to not interfere and just sit on my stool like a good little boy.

Here is Autumn with her twins, a ram and a ewe, out of Heights Orion. Autumn is a mioget and the ram lamb looks like he will be also. the ewe may be a fawn or a light moorit. Time will tell.
The ram is on the left, and the ewe is on the right. She has a little bit uneven fleece towards her hips but nothing we can't work with :) both lambs are 62.5% UK. This little girls name is WhitePine Eve.

Eat your heart out Bill!! This little powerhouse looks like he'll be going mioget...and look at that FLEECE!! Could you get any more EVEN? Even his tail head is crimpy :) He's going to give Levi (Jamie x Lucy) a run for his money for the most consistent fleece! His name will be WhitePine Ephraim. He is a full sibling to Bill's ram that he purchased from Cynthia Allen named FirthofFifth Aman who is a mioget and is the father of my Rico (bersugget) and Rush (white) lambs out of Rachildas last year. Rachildas is bred to Orion this year and we are awaiting her fuits of labor :)
