SPRING BREAK AND 2012 LAMBS

In one week's time we went from four feet of snow to bare ground and grass springing up. In the last 48 hours we went from 21 sheep to 28 with the addition of seven new lambs. This is a Grand Luxe X Izzy ram lamb with small scurs/hornbuds and a very dense, crimpy dark brown fleece at 12 hours old on his first outing. This is "Daddy Longlegs"--Grasshopper X Farview Farm Sweet Tart--a smirslet fawn katmoget twin ram lamb with small hornbuds/scurs? He is for sale. His sister has more white on her head and may be for sale as well.
This is Simone(already sold)with her polled dark brown ram lamb sired by Khan. He is tentatively reserved already. He went out in the main field with the ewes at 24 hours and kept up with everyone. He is now sleeping it off.

This is Izzy with her Grand Luxe grey katmoget ewe lamb "Lexi" who may be staying in the flock.And this is Simone & her son with Alanis(bred to Khan for Tuesday)and Manga(Alanis's daughter from last year)checking out her baby boy.


Last night when we were really ready to just chill out and after these photos were all uploaded Ruby gave birth to twin ewe lambs by Grasshopper--a mirror image modified with small krunet and amazing fleece and a dramatic smirslet moorit. Photos next time we make the trek into town via all our backroads. And not to be outdone Maple Sugar had twin ewe lambs by Grasshopper just a couple hours later--both fawn katmogets with spotting--one is for sale.

Great looking group. That Simone is a looker, not that the rest aren't lovely, but she stands out a bit. So does that grey kat!!!
