The last girl is home! Today I picked up my second ewe, a registered Romney. She's bred and due to lamb in the spring.

Isn't she cute? I love Romney faces. I need a name for her. Any suggestions?

When I brought her home, Darla came right up to her and seemed to be glad there was finally another sheep. The goats hadn't exactly welcomed her.

I'm pretty excited for the Romney girl to lamb, because there's a pretty good chance that she'll have natural colored (see pictures here) lambs (hopefully she'll have twins). If I remember correctly, her breeder said her sire was a natural colored ram, and she's bred to a natural colored ram. The breeder also said you can get either color (white or natural) from any sheep, so it's possible if she twins she could have one of each! Exciting!

While I was taking pictures, Kylee was making friends with Savannah.

June preferred to watch from a safe distance.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Awww! She's so cute! I love Romney's! Look at that tummy. LOL I like the idea for Meryl Sheep, mom!

What a sweet face. Meryl Sheep :) cute Deb.

I'll throw in "Clara Parkes" who just published "The Knitters Book of Wool"

What a lovely sheep! Just want to snuggle into that thick wool. I'll throw out my name suggestion: "Cumulus" - the fluffy white cloud.

Purl!!! That's it!! I love it, Becky!

And I love the other suggestions too! Thanks everyone!! Meryl Sheep..LOL. And Clara is a cute name too. Maybe one of her daughters (if she has one?), and she definitely looks like a Cumulus! She's pretty fluffy.

Katie she is so cute. How about Pickles? For some reason that was the first name that popped into my head. And your goats are cute too. I missed their earlier pics. Love you.
