Why yes, I DO have a black lamb!

Boulderneigh Bing.

He's still notoriously difficult to photograph.

He's still noticeably bigger than the twins.

Bing loves to be out in the pasture to run and play and bounce and butt. Marta is a little less obsessive about keeping track of him now.

These two are still my posers, though.

Believe it or not, I could not get one decent photo of my daffodils, but love the way this dandelion picture turned out. I guess one yellow flower is as beautiful a spring herald as another!

That's it for today from . . .

The twins look like little forest creatures in these 2 shots.

Have not seen any dandelions yet, but those lambs are DARLING

Michelle said...

Shelly, I always think the gulmoget-patterned lambs, like the little ewe lamb, look especially like fawns!

Rich Johnson said...

Great looking lambs, Michelle. Exactly what we expect from your fantastic flock! I've never had a lamb do that either - not while the ewe is standing anyway.

That second shot of Bing is really cute. He's about to go nose to nose with you.
Love them all....

He's beautiful!

Michelle said...

Why thank-you, Rich; that's high praise coming from someone with a flock like yours!

That's what he's usually trying to do, farmlady. :-)

Thanks, Sara!

Years ago dandelions were the first color you would see in the spring. Until we grew up an found out they were weeds, you thought a yard covered with dandelions was beautiful! Have a great day.

I love all the lambs. You must be having some beautiful weather where you are.

Yes, you DO have a black lamb, and a very handsome boy he is too! Will you keep any of these? How can you re-home any of them? It's probably a (very) good thing that I don't live near you, AND don't have a farm, or I would be your best customer!

Speaking of customer, if you ever want to sell a little of Cadbury's gorgeous fleece (or processed roving) let me know!

The lambs are so adorable! We won't have any Shetlands until April 24th and beyond.We got a late start last Fall, but we do have our first Katahdin lambs~ twins, one of each. I surely wish we lived closer , I so want a gully like "little lover girl"!

I wish I lived closer. I really want a gulmoget ewe lamb and yours are always so wonderful. Congratulations on Bling, what a cutie pie.

He's so cute! (And so are the twins)

Lovely lambs Michelle. I'd keep my eye on that Bing, he's a stunning little fella. Is he smooth polled?

Michelle said...

No, Kelly; unfortunately both ram lambs are growing little points of horn, so they are half-polls.
