Fuzzy Faces

The ewe lambs have been weaned for about a week now. I usually wean around 8 weeks but these girls were weaned somewhere around 10 weeks because I didn't want to put them in with my ram lambs. The ram lambs were sold on Sunday, so the pen was free. Today I vaccinated, eartagged, and dewormed them, but before I did that I took a few pictures.

I haven't named them yet, but I need to soon. I need to be able to call them something besides "the big girl" and "the little girl".

This is the big girl. She seems smart and alert and a little wary.

She is the one keeping her eye on me while her sister is busy eating.

And this adorable face belongs to the little girl. She has her mother's fluffy teddy bear-esque face. I love it.

I plan on showing them (or Devin will show them) at our county fair in August and the one drawback is that I'll have to shear them. I'll miss these adorable faces.

Big girl again.

So, any name ideas? Their mother is Darla, and their father was unnamed, so that's not much inspiration.

I love those girls. :) What about April and May since you already have a June? ;) I guess that wouldn't make much sense though since they're twins.
What about Petunia and Daisy? or Cinnamon and Nutmeg? or Cocoa and Mocha?

They are so cute!

Sassy comes to mind for the 'Big Girl' and what about 'Berry' for the little girl :)

The photo of the little one is too cute Katie!! How can anyone not love her??? The name that comes to mind with the little one is Monkey. So maybe Spunky for the bigger girl? Katie - you have done such a great job with your animals and I am proud of you for thinning the crowd for profit and sustainability. You are somethin' else darling girl. Love, Momma
