Behinder and behinder ~
Getting caught up on anything seems beyond my grasp at this point. I am feeling worse than usual today and suspect I shall spend most of the time in bed. Which my doctors, sister and daughter prefer anyway. ;-)
I think what I may do is just make regular lamb updates with photos. There may or may not be words to accompany the pictures but I'll try to put in enough commentary to let you know at least who the photos are of. If you enjoy lamb photos, check back often because I may post more than once a day...I've got LOTS of lamb pictures...
Alice's long-awaited twins:
My poor Lady!
Both of these boys are BIG! I'd say each one is close to or over 8 pounds!
Look at the huge horn buds on "Tanqueray"!
He also has the tan stockings and tail (phaeomelanin) as does Godiva's little white girl. This must come from the Sire (BC Polar Bear) as I've never had a white lamb born with it before.
I can't even imagine what a WHITE Alice son will grow up to look like!
But I'll bet it's going to be GOOD!
The first time I saw him, "Don Perignon" almost took my breath away! Even from a distance, it was obvious that this lamb is Ag (the gene which causes a black lamb to turn grey or a morrit lamb to turn musket). I was praying that this incredible lamb ~ who, still covered with birthing fluids, had such a presence and air of elegance and regality around him ~ was a black based girl.
It's hard to be too disappointed when one has a ram lamb this awesome! I've never had an Ag lamb born showing so much of the mature coloring but it sure is beautiful.
Don Perignon meeting "Razz Ma Taz"
His conformation is incredible!
I should not be surprised by this ~ seeing he is an Alice ram lamb ~ but I am absolutely in awe of this guy.
I think that Alice agrees:
