No time to get great photos this morning. I just took a couple from over the door and outside the jug. Since Sian belongs to my oldest son, and the lambs are his, he named these two. He made these up. He's a "namer" after my own heart. The little grey ewe lamb is Leil. For non-Shetland people: this lamb's black body will fade to grey as she gets older. Her head and legs will stay essentially black, though. Leil has a gorgeous newborn coat. This katmoget ram lamb is Jchen. I can't figure out if those white patches on his side are spotting or just katmoget variation. My other kat Bombarde baby has dark solid sides. But I know there can be a big difference from lamb to lamb. Any thoughts from those in the know?
