Lap of luxury

That's what a lap full of lovely Shetland lambs is, IMHO. Yesterday afternoon I sat with the sheep awhile and soon had the "three friendlies" gathered around for scritches. Bramble came up for a nice, long love-fest, too.

Mr. Love Bug.

Bodhran must be singing "The world is black, the world is white...." (Your earworm for today, if you're old enough to remember!)

I couldn't catch Blake in as handsome a stance as he struck yesterday, but he looks pretty good from any angle. :-)

Katie, five weeks from her due date, is starting to waddle a bit. I can't wait to see what she and gorgeous Constantine produce for me! They (has to be twins, right?) could be gulmoget, solid or Ag (or Ag/gulmoget), in shades of brown or black. So many wonderful possibilities! A solid or gulmoget ewe lamb or two would be dandy, although that wouldn't answer the question regarding Katie's horn genetics. I guess the ideal outcome would be healthy triplets - a fully-horned ram lamb for Lois, an obvious half- or full-poll ramling for me, and a knock-out ewe lamb in solid moorit or moorit gulmoget to retain. A girl can dream!

That's it for now at . . .
