Lucky lambies

Boulderneigh Blake's first lamb crop is five weeks old today. Blake became an orphan at this age (with no ill effects); these lucky lambies still have their mommies. While they are eating grass and hay (and the two girls do their best to steal grain from Inky's ration), they still enjoy a nip of warm milk when Annabelle and Bronwen give permission. Without that permission, it is clear the bar is closed!

I couldn't get any decent "birthday" photos of Birdie, but here are some snaps of the other two:
Bonny's conformation and carriage have impressed from birth. Typey Shetland tail, too! Actually, all three of Blake's lambs have nice tails and square conformation.
Bart is a handsome fellow who is filling out very nicely. Love that topline and consistent fleece!

That's it for today from . . .

Very nice indeed. Is Bart hornless?

Beautiful lambs, Michelle! And that grass!!!!

Bart has little points that don't yet show beyond his poll wool, so yeah, pretty hornless at this point!

The lambs are looking good. Wow has it been 5 weeks already, and a year since Blake lost his mom?Time is flying. Great pictures. I always have a hard time getting pictures with their heads up, must wait them out to stop feeding.
