We’ve decided to be a little more traditional this year and instead of naming our lambs for months (April and March) or children’s book characters (Charlie Bucket, James Henry Trotter, and Olive), all our 2008 lambs will be named starting with the letter C. Next year, we’ll go D...Unless we get whimsical again, of course. This will help us keep track of which lambs were born when as our flock grows. Here are the current ten:
Daisy’s two ewe lambs were born first. Caroline and Coraline are already HUGE and heavy on phaeomelanin. These two are the product of our first line breeding and it appears that they have the characteristics of Copper to a tee.
Maya’s ewe lambs, 3 days younger, will be a
beautiful gray black, much like their sire, Bombadil. Right now, however, they just have “flashing” here and there. These two, named
Chloe and Cleo, are agile, spunky and quick.
