We are still driving long-distance to make town trips every three days as there is a mud bog on our main road. But this meant we actually got to see a moose one afternoon(something that was on my bucket list after seeing tracks down our driveway two times). Since the beginning of lambing season we have had seven ewes give very easy birth to 12 lambs--five rams and seven ewes. We will continue to post photos as time permits.Wintertime Grasshopper X Wintertime Maple Sugar twin fawn spotted ewe lamb. Being retained in the flock. I call this one Firefly, but we shall see what Meghan eventually decides.

Wintertime Grasshopper X Wintertime Maple Sugar--twin krunet fawn katmoget ewe lamb. For sale. Very soft and sweet and lively. I call her Lacewing.

Wintertime Grasshopper X Wintertime Ruby modified moorit small krunet twin ewe lamb. Definitely a keeper. Meghan has been waiting a long time for her special Ruby daughter. And then she got two of them. This is a twin to the above moorit. Very flashy and soft with loads of crimp underneath. She reminds me very much of the original Winter Sky Chrome but even finer.

Just had twin ram lambs sired by Khan born to Wintertime Alanis last night. Too tired to upload photos but the fleeces are wonderful and type is good.

Did you get a photo of the moose?
Very cute lambs. Love them all.

No the moose was on the move, so we just got a glimpse. But it was so much more fun than seeing deer everywhere.

I love the insect naming theme this year!

Ooohhh, love that Firefly. I can see why you decided to keep that baby. My husband despairs every time a kid is born and I immediately decide it is staying. Ha ha!
