It often works out that we breed in groups, with one group due a few weeks before the next group. In some ways, this works well. But it sure can make a small flock lambing season seem to go on forever.
Ethel was the first for round two with a bouncing baby boy, by Dresden. Winston (I was watching Call the Midwife and there was a reference to Winston Churchhill’s funeral)
Darby followed a few days later with the first Painted Rock Wizard lamb, a four horned ewe lamb named Monroe. You’ll catch the reference if you’ve ever seen “that dress”!
Jubilee delivered twins as a first time mother. No problem for her! She loves her lambs. A lilac ewe and ram by Huron. Both four horned.
Moppet – because, well she’s a moppet – a small endearingly sweet child.
Jubal – because that’s his grandsire’s name and I like the name. It’s from from one of my favorite books.
Following a few hours after Jubilee, Paloma popped out (literally – these 4 horned boys were in a hurry!) lilac twins by Dresden. Paloma left Patchwork as a lamb to live with Laura Burnside. Laura was kind enough to let Paloma come back from Cooperstown, NY last summer. Welcome to:
Townes and Cooper
Jazz, another of my prized Badger daughters, lambed a few days later with twins by Huron.
Coltrane – four horned black ram – because he’s a son of Jazz
and Weasel – originally a tribute to her granddam, Badger, but she’s managed to earn the name by weaseling out of the lambing jug on a regular basis.
AnnieRose is one of my favorite ewes. She’s beautiful and sweet. She loves attention and scratches and she loves her new daughter, Juno – named after a rose.
