Hannah Delivers!

After doing my best to completely ignore the fact that Hannah refused to leave the barn yesterday, I found this little black ewe lamb all dried off around 8pm last night.
Yaaaayyy!  At least I got ONE ewe lamb from Courante this year. 
She has the tiniest white spot on her poll.  And the most uniform dog hair coat I have ever seen.  It's just plain odd as all the other Courante offspring are super-crimpy.  It'll be interesting to see how her fleece grows out.
I think I'll call her Justina.

Then at 9pm I found this little guy bouncing all over the pen.  To say I was surprised is an understatement.
I've never bred for spots.  So he was charmingly unexpected.
I'm calling him Trans Am! ...after Clancy's flashy silver and black restoration project!

Love the white tail!  How cute is that?!

And one more just because I like his little pink nose.  :)

Notice the horn buds?  Since I am breeding for polled sheep, this little guy will be for sale if he develops into a breeding quality lamb by the end of summer.  He carries moorit and solid.

Hannah has since returned to the size of an average ewe that is pregnant with twins... how does she stay so huge?  Now I'm only waiting on Lana, my gulmoget, to lamb.  I'm thinking sometime after Wednesday...

Trans Am is the perfect name for that little guy. Congrats on getting two more lovely lambs.

Congratulations Sabrina! I love the flashy spotted katmoget ram lamb. Hannah took a long time between lambs last year too. And I know what you mean about her looking like she's still carrying twins. Her sister has the same figure.
