L: Let sleeping lambs lie

It's interesting to see the lambs bed down in pairs at night, always with their twin, even though they all play together in a mass during the day.

Like little boys, little lambs crash hard when they finally go down!

Today's featured lamb is Boulderneigh Blizz, Rechel's grey ramling born April 4. He has definitely inherited a poll gene from his sire, making him a half-poll. At this point he has little scurs growing in depressions on his head - as WELL as a nice, square body, soft fleece, and tiny tail! He would make a handsome flock sire for someone desiring polled genetics. He is greying at a much slower pace than his twin, so I am guessing he may be Ag/Aa, and he is definitely carries brown. (Compare Blizz's midside shot, top, to Bluster's midside shot, bottom.)As with any of my lambs, just contact me via the "Email me" link at right and we can discuss price and transportation. This is one of the lambs I plan to show at Black Sheep in June, so he could be picked up there.

That's it for now at . . .

Suzanne and Kathy, my fingers are clean only because I had gloves on until I took those photos! It was cool enough early in the week to warrant them; now we are sweating through a heat wave that is supposed to break records. Psycho weather continues....
