One Is Better Than None

Sheltering Pines Snowy had twin lambs this morning. Happily, one is a ewe lamb.

I think I may call her Polka Dot since she has a black dot on each of her legs on her left side. Her brother has real thick horn buds. Snowy did fine except she chose to lamb outside, and I had to put up a fence to protect her from one of my yearlings.All is well, and they are in the shed for bonding time.

Lucy and her twins will come out of their jug in a little while when I feed everyone.

Another Super Tuesday!!!

Congratulations! I love the little white lambs and the black dots are really cool. Does that make her black with one white patch?

Well, it is all about breeding. You only need one ram for lots of ewes. Kind of a polygamy thing.
