It begins!

The last two weeks before lambing seem to last for months, but finally one day (or one night as this happens), the first lamb is born.

Patchwork Macaroon delivered this

handsome four horned lilac boy last night.  Mac was sooo wide, I was positive there would be twins, but this little ham wanted all the attention!  It’s a rather bittersweet time as we lost his sire..

Patchwork Belvedere, last week when a storm blew a poisonous mountain laurel branch up against the ram fence. Belvedere leaves this handsome boy and 7 more bred ewes behind. We miss you, Belvedere – you were a handsome and gentle boy. We’ll cherish your lambs even more this year.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of the loss of that beautiful ram. I’m glad you have several ewes bred to him. Love this time of the year!

    Cute little guy! I can’t wait for my first ever Jacob babies to hit the ground so I can experience the cuteness first hand.

    Good luck with the rest of the lambs!

    May Belvedere rest in peace.

    Linda, Im soo sorry to hear of Belvedeere’s loss. This lamb is so cute and looks like he will be a nice possible herd sire.

  4. He is so cute! I love enjoying their cuteness for the first couple of weeks.

  5. My first Jacob ram had such a cute little smile that I always thought of him as a happy going kind of guy. His happy face did not match his personality. Hopefully Banner will be more mellow!
    Just noticed that my avatar for comments is a picture of Macaroon as a lamb. She was such a cutie.

    He’s adorable, although I think he looks like he’s smiling…a bit like the joker in the Batman movie.
