Lamb Updates

The last lambs of the year were born yesterday.  Dixie had twins, a ewe and a ram. They're all healthy and doing great.

The other lambs are really getting big.

The ewe lamb on the far left is really impressing me.  She's the biggest of all of the older lambs, and she's a triplet.  I hope the kids decide to take her to the fair so I can see how she does.

Here are the three triplets together.

The Suffolk influence gives a few of these lambs an interesting face...I'm used to the woolly faces of the Southdowns and Romneys, and these lambs have woolly faces but they've got bigger patches of hair around their eyes and mouths than I'm used to.

Here's the ram, below.  He sure is a long boy.  And see how big Dixie was (in front of him) before she lambed?

The lambs look wonderful and I'm so glad Dixie delivered without any trouble. I can't wait to see how that one ewe lamb does at the fair! :)
