The Crop

The hoped-for result of all this getting up in the night and checking on the sheep is, of course, healthy lambs. Here’s one stepping out on her first day in the real world. She’s 2 days old here. That’s her mom, warning me this is her lamb.

Stepping out!

This one is pretty dark for an ideal Jacob sheep. We like them to have black spots on a white ground better than this overall big splash. The “knee patches” are good, and little black feet, and the eye patches, and her wool is of a nice texture. Her nose is dark but her upper lips are white, which is kind of funny. Like a milk mustache.

Here’s another :

Spring lamb.

They pose so pretty! We hope that halo is baby fuzz, that will go away. It usually does.
