A June lamb?!!

Needless to say I still haven't taken the clean up ram out of the adult ewe flock (WhitePine Caiphas, F1 Holly). Much to my thanks he was NOT in the ewe lamb pen, but there WAS a ewe lamb in with the adult ewes!
One of my F1 Jericho ewe lambs, a bielset, sokket gray katmoget ewe lamb out of ShelteringPines Nirvana was the very IN LOVE girl. *sigh*. I really wasn't going to have any ewe lambs bred. Honest.
It is good to see that most are nearly the same size as the yearlings (now almost 2 year olds).
Let's pray she didn't take. 3 months of lambing is a bit much right? :)
