New Lambs — Dot & Doris
So the first thing I should probably post is our current stats as of this minute — 19 rams, 12 ewes = 31 lambs thus far. A few more girls look like they’ll be lambing but most of Raider’s are done (still waiting on Lily), Paisley just had a nice little four horned ram lamb today so his name is Patrick. Then Prescott’s girls should be finishing up, though they just started the other day with Edna having a ram and a ewe, both black and white; and Demure having twin ewes, one a lilac and one black and white.
And in this sea of black and white (which is really very pretty!) there is one lone lilac ewe lamb and of course, is the most difficult to photograph. Dot is the lilac (she has a spot on the back of her head) and her sister Doris is the black and white, who has actually posed for me already.
Dot seems to always be too busy to be bothered with the camera, and she’s very much a mama’s girl. Doris seems to have a bit of rebel in her so she’ll pause to actually look at me.
Too little time in the day, too many holes in the pasture.
Too many beds to be tried…
Too many relatives in the way. Notice the bright blue eyes — all three girls have them. I’m super excited about that.
And then off again… Can hardly catch them before they leave. See, not all photos at Mud Ranch are created equal, and in many many shots there may but just one good one. In Dot’s case, there really aren’t any… Oh, but we’ll keep her anyway.
