White Lamb

White Lamb

Our Romney ewe, Snowflake, had two beautiful lambs last Sunday.  The ‘Lucky Lucky’ part is that her water broke on a warm Sunday morning instead of  it happening in the middle of the coldest night of the year like it often does.

Snowflake is a natural colored Romney which can be a mix of black, gray, silver and brown colors, unlike the rest of our Romney’s which are all white.  From what I have been told, it is somewhat unusual to have a black and a white lamb in the same litter.  All I know is that they are really cute.

While all the excitement happened in Snowflake’s  pen, the rest of the animals went on with life as usual.

    Well, aren’t those the cutest creatures! Both of our Romneys only had mixed twins – males were white and females black, 3 out of 3 litters.

    How much time do you all spend looking for excuses to pick them up and cuddle?
