One more ewe left to lamb. Twinky thinks she’s pretty special since she got her own blog entry awhile back. So she’s making us wait. Things have been happening while Twinky gets ready for her moment.
Patchwork Badger followed a few days later with twins by Casanova. Badger was so big
I thought she might have triplets. I was happy when she settled on twins on April 6. And especially pleased when one turned out to be a four horned lilac ram. I had hoped that Abbott or Casanova might carry lilac as they each have a parent that does. Finding out that both carry lilac made me giddy and jazzed. Since I could not find any good names based on Badger’s name…
Patchwork Gideon – lilac 4 horned ram
and his 4 horned twin sister, Patchwork Jazz
Broken O Melodie followed with twin ewes by Unzicker Abbott on April 7
The next day Palmetto Acres Lucinda presented us with a striking blue eyed 4 horned ram by Casanova, Patchwork Beacon. Lucinda followed her usual method of tossing her lambs, which is a story in itself. As usual, all is well although it is rather unsettling to watch.
On April 9, the much anticipated cross of Blue Ewe Alicia and Moose Mtn Hawk arrived. A handsome 4 horned lilac ram. Alicia means noble and his name is August. He will have his own blog post soon. He had a bit of an adventure.
We are at 24 lambs, 12 rams and 12 ewes. Twinky – it’s up to you to break the tie.
