ZEST & BRAVO HAVE TWINS!
After a LONG day (I found Zest, in early labor, at 1:00 in the afternoon and she delivered these beauties at 7:30 last night!) Zest presented me with twins, sired by Bravo. An awesome HsT (only three white stockings so he gets a 'lower case S' ~ indicating an incomplete expression of the marking) ram lamb who weighed in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces! Quickly followed by his little sister: "Bluff Country La Mia Bella" ("my beauty"), 6 pounds, 6 ounces of absolutely gorgeous, black/smirslet ewe lamb with "obvious at birth" - outstanding conformation and beautiful fleece! What a doll. I'm even thinking about keeping her for myself!
I have to admit, I almost feel sorry for the people who have ram lambs reserved from my girls. It's going to be mighty hard to select and we've only got two so far!!! ;-) I took the day off work so will have more/better pictures this afternoon when I let Zest and her twins out into the nursery paddock...
