First Wool Baby Ever!

The first wool baby ever has been born on our farm! This little guy was born without us even knowing he was on the way! We went out to feed and my husband said "there is a lamb out there!" And, sure enough, there he was! He wasn't even dried off yet and he was running alongside the rest of the herd. His mama, Naomi, and his daddy, Smokey, are my absolute favorite sheep on the farm. He is a 3/4 Border Leicester and 1/4 Shetland cross, with curly silver black wool. He should be a real looker! Naomi won't quit looking at him - I think she knows he is special! Hopefully when they are moved out of the lambing barn I will be able to get a better picture of him. We are still watching udders and backsides grow by the minute. I fully expected a few others to go before Naomi; it looks like three of the Shetland girls may be in a race to see who can domino first. Hopefully I will be able to post more lamb pictures soon! ~Lori

  1. Lori, he is a match for my Maggie. Let's see, a 1/2 BFL, 1/4 corriedale and 1/4 shetland with your guy should make some very soft thick a very dark color. Happy Lambing!
