Sunday early afternoon brought the last two lambs. They are Carrie and Campbell. Carrie is a black gulmoget and Campbell is a moorit gulmoget. I wish it was the other way around, but can't complain since at least one of them is a ewe lamb.

|Wheat had twin ram lambs last Saturday night.|
My herd is very small, so lambing is a real big deal here. I was so shocked to have three ewes lamb yesterday morning. The weather was not cooperative, but we managed. They did most of the work to get them dried and fed and warmed. Today they are jumping all over their jugs and keeping me from doing anything because I keep running out there to snuggle them.
Their names will reflect their mother's first initial and the names, first or last, of country singers. Little girl and one boy are not yet named. Some suggestions have been made, but they have been rejected by the shepherdess. (All suggestions would be appreciated. I don't do country music.)
