Another black lamb born yesterday morning

There are two ewes still due to lamb, the season's been long this year because we kept some of last year's ewe lambs and we like them to lamb a bit later in the season.

We've had three black lambs so far this year. They're so sweet when they're little.

We're on the lookout for a new ram for later this summer. A neighbour has one she's been bottle feeding which she doesn't want to kill (but will do a swop...) This is ideal for us, because he'll be a bit tamer than a tup reared by his mum and won't butt us from behind when we least expect it !
