Here they are.....

My Dear Alice would NOT bring her babies out of the barn yesterday! She was not very happy with me because I put all the moms and babies back into the main barn & paddock and put the three remaining "ladies in waiting" into the smaller, nursery paddock. Alice made it quite clear that she thought there were entirely too many sheep in her barn. When I got up this morning, Alice and her triplets were out in the fresh paddock. (as far away from the other sheep as she could get!)

Meet Alice's 7 pound, 4 ounce, black/bleset, son "Bluff Country Dynasty" and 5 pound, 10 ounce, black (with a wisp of white), daughter: "Bluff Country Destiny". I've been hoping for a black ewe lamb since I first bred Alice ~ THIS year I was hoping for a grey ewe lamb. ;-)

Needless to say, I was THRILLED when I saw this grey head being born. Unfortunately (for me, but lucky for somebody else!) lamb number three is another ram. Meet "Bluff Country Einstein". I swear, he looks like he's wearing spectacles! (and he's very smart!) Einstein weighed in at 6 pounds, 10 ounces.

As the other ewes and lambs started venturing into the paddock (perhaps because they sensed that I was sneaking Alice some creep feed!), Alice escorted her triplets to a cluster of trees.

Einstein took the opportunity for a game of "hide-and-seek"!

THERE you are!

I missed you too....

Proud MommaI don't know if you can tell if you click on this picture to enlarge it, but Dynasty is so big that he lies down to eat!

  3. Sorry you didn't get your grey ewe lamb from Alice, but I know you can't hold it against her when she's such a great producer!
