Raider’s Kids — Newest Jacob Lambs

While most people are done lambing, we’ve had to do some “clean-up” lambing on our City Girls.  They’ve all finished now, and we have brand new springy lambs from some really great bloodlines.

Introducing:

“Mud Ranch’s Bianca” — Born 04/28/09 Raider x Hillside’s C.R. Boudicca

Bianca was a twin but her brother (very similarly marked) passed away at two days old.  Pretty ewe lamb if you like a lot of black — like me.

For anyone who knows who’s who in the Jacob sheep world, most of these babies trace back to Chicory Lane Houdini who is now owned and used by Robin at Meridian Jacobs.

And now, leaving you with a lamby smile, “Say cheese Stardust!”

  1. Wow, there are a lot of them! They are all adorable and unique. I think Stardust is my favorite.
    I love your names, too! 🙂

    • Thanks PG — Stardust is a favorite around here too and what’s really unique is my Hubby got to name her. 😉 It just *went* with “Sprinkles.”
