This morning when I went to check on the girls I noticed that Gardenia had been digging up the loose hay, that is a sure sign that she was getting ready to lamb. So I put her in a stall in just in case. I had to make a trip to the store so after checking on her I headed off. I was gone less than an hour and when I returned Gardenia was a proud mother of twins, one ewe and one ram.
Bently is the ram and he weighed in at just over seven pounds. Gardenia dotes of him and he seems to be her favorite.
Bristol is his sister and she weighed in at six pounds, I think she may be polled. Both lambs look very "Soay", you can really tell the difference between them and the Icelandic ram lambs.
Berkley is a handsome lad and has made the food bowl his sleeping space.
I finally got a non blurry picture of Brighton, he is Lara's favorite and is quite handsome.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
