Bengal was the first of my girls to lamb this year, exactly as she did in 2013......with a single black ram lamb. This little guy is out of OK Acres Garth, a shaela ram that I used for the 1st time this past fall. His lamb fleece looks really nice and he is horned, so I may have a nice fine fleeced horned ram for all you horn lovers out there. He has some minor head spotting, so probably a spot carrier too. His dad is Smirslet sokket, his mom is a grey kat, so lots of possibilities genetically.
I've got Garnet, our resident lamb stealer, cooling her heals in a lambing jug until she lambs so I don't end up with her stealing lambs for the 3rd year in a row. She is such a great mom that she just can't help herself when she sees lambs crying.
I only have 3 new moms this year, but if I leave Garnet out with the others, she's sure to grab a baby from someone and the new girls need to figure things out without the added frustration of an over zealous mom to be.
