Little Napping Lambs

Boston Lake Lyneth and Nhu resting in the sun. If I bounced half the day away like they do, I would need a nap too.
I'm glad to report that this pair of lambs is no longer needing a supplemental bottle. Anna Belle is feeding them just fine on her own now. They are growing nicely. A few days ago they started nibbling the grain treat with their dam. Their fleece is so tight and crimpy, though, they still look little compared to all the other fuzzy puffy lambs like Bam and Nadin.
Nhu and Lyneth are little love bugs. The temporary bottle feeding seemed to bond them to me almost as much as they bonded to their mom. I love how they gallop toward me whenever I enter the pasture.

Those two look like keepers as well; are they?

Yes indeed! There is a good chance they carry the polled gene from Bombarde, and maybe even from Anna Belle.

It isn't the most sure fire way to break into polled-but their fleece and conformation make them keepers anyway. :)
