Lamb Post #10-----Winding down

Tuesday we were greeted by 2 lovely moorit ewe lambs when we got home from work from Challis.  Challis is 9 yrs old and a great example of everything a Shetland ewe should be.  She's a stellar mother, very milky and raises robust lambs, zero lambing problems, she's typey, has great confirmation, good fleece, gives me lambs that are a notch above herself and is virtually hands off in regards to care.  Challis is on lease from Lori at Sommarang Farm while she is on her missionary trip in Spain, so this will be the last lambs I get from her before she goes home to Lori in January.  Challis has become one of my favorite ewes  here since she's been with me and I will miss her quiet ways and sweet personality.
