My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Lambing came to a wonderful end on April 23. Tardy Twinky (AKA Patchwork Twinky), as she had planned, had the spotlight all to herself for the delivery of her son. Following this year’s themes based on the dam’s name, he is named Wonder. And he is!
Wonder is a four horned lilac ram lamb sired by Kenleigh’s Casanova. He not only reinforces the discovery that Casanova carries lilac, he proves that Twinky does too. It’s wonderful to see how Casanova put some facial markings on Twinky’s lamb. She is a bit lacking in that area, with barely enough to pass registration. She’s done a good job of producing nicely marked lambs with the right rams. Judging by the fleece on this boy, I’d say Casanova was the right ram in all ways.
It was a great and wonderful lambing season! 25 vigorous lambs, up and nursing quickly after birth. One rather unusual experience that August will talk about later, but all is well.
12 ewes, 13 rams. 1 two horned, 24 four horned. 8 lilacs. Both Unzicker Abbott and Kenleigh’s Casanova turned out to be lilac carriers. Pretty good year.
