Formal introductions

Well, well, well; by dawn's watery light it is clear that Blake is still batting 1000 at passing on the Agouti gene. (He's probably homozygous Ag, meaning he has two copies of that gene and all his lambs will inherit one copy from him.) Last night I could tell the frosted black girl was going to fade to grey; not until this morning could I see that the little brown one also has telltale white hairs. Both of them are gorgeous creatures IMHO, so that informed the naming inspiration. ;-)

Allow me to introduce Boulderneigh Brigitte,

and Boulderneigh Bardot (pronounced bar-doe, like the actress).
I edited Bardot's photo to better show her amazing fleece so it looks washed out. Both lambs have tightly crimped fleeces from ears to tail; I'm so pleased!

That's one down and one to go before we leave (pleasehurrypleasehurrypleasehurry).
"How about NOW, brown cow?"

"WHAT did you call me?!?"

Just telling it as I sees it, at . . .

You probably figured out that my previous comment left on an earlier post was meant to go here… Congrats on the two female lambs. (hmm, what is a female lamb called?)
