Well, the ewe that had the flashy pair at the top of this page gave me two MORE ram lambs today. They are both black with big white patches on their heads and white around their noses. Luckily one has two short back white socks. Now I will be able to tell them apart. The pictures are not good because it is dark in the garage where Lucy decided to give birth. We had to make a bonsai run to Milwaukee this morning to see Jake's father who had a stroke yesterday afternoon. He is doing fine today. When we got home at about 3:30, Lucy had delivered one, and then the second one arrived a little bit later. All is well in the garage except for the sex of the lambs.
They are equally sized which is quite different from the first two. They are crimpy from head to butt and have nice short tails. One has horn buds, and the other one has something different. I can't tell what just yet. The first two that were born on Tuesday have significant horn buds and may have horns like their father. The little grey/brown one has crimp right down to the end of his tail. It is really cool. I sure wish he was a girl!!
I am 0 and 4 now. That is not a very good score.
