Last But Not Least

Introducing our last lamb for the season at Hidaway Farms...it's a girl...it's a grey katmoget...her mother is a first time mom...her name is Solitaire (Live and Let Die - James Bond). Solitaire was born last night at about 6:00. She came on day 148 of gestation. Mom worked hard to deliver this single, our first single of the year. The shepherd (Rothey) helped a little so it wouldn't be too difficult. She spent most of the night licking and licking and licking and licking. She talked and licked and licked some more. Katie has decided that she is a keeper.

Totals: 10 ram lambs/7 ewe lambs
1 black
1 musket
4 grey
1 moorit smirslet
1 smirslet fawn katmoget
4 grey katmogets
5 fawn katmogets (one may be modified)

As I get cute pictures, I will be introducing them by name. All the ewes have been named with their James Bond character. The rams will be waiting for names until we see how they grow up.

Thank you so much! We are pleased with this lamb crop. This is also the first time in 4 years that we haven't had a bottle lamb. It will be a nice break from all that devotion.
