We had our own Fireworks!

Bluff Country Chance waited until July 4, 2011 to deliver the very last lamb born to Bluff Country Shetlands.

Without further ado, I'd like to introduce:
"Bluff Country Firecracker"

Firecracker is a good sized HST ram lamb who looks moorit & white now but will probably be fawn and white like his Mama.  I just love his markings!

Wow!  This is my year for HST ram lambs!  I've got Jim Beam (moorit & white) and Jack Daniels (shaela and white) available as well!   (Captain Morgan and On the Rocks are sold)

Firecracker had his first adventure in the big pasture today (while the rest of the girls and lambs were in the side pasture) and enjoyed following his Mom around...

Chance wasn't too happy that I was 'stalking' her boy with my camera!

But Firecracker didn't seem to mind one bit!

It's kind of fun having a new baby around again. 

Dom Perignon, Brandy, Tequila, Duke and Hero all left for their new homes today.
Firecracker is sired by Polar Bear (white).
Bear's the only adult ram that I still have left for sale.  Whoever gets him will be one lucky shepherd.  He is AWESOME and has given me the most gorgeous lambs!   It's a bit frustrating to see the quality of my flock improving so dramatically, right as I'm about to give them up.  At least I can 'retire' feeling that I've accomplished something.
I'm very proud of my flock.

Dream says...

"Poor Alice!  She's been crying all day and running around looking for that handsome Dom Perignon.  She's still got Tanqueray but nobody's slipping a missing baby past that old girl!  She knows how to count to two..."


  1. What is the saying? "It's not how you start the race, but how you finish"? If so, you done good, girl!

  2. Simply beautiful. Good for a really long snuzzle! :)
