That's more lambs than you can shake a stick at! My lord, when do you have time to eat and sleep? LOL My favorites are the lambs with color on their faces. Ulyssia is particularly striking, but Ulani is adorable with those black cheeks and pink nose! I just wanna squeeze her!

Thanks for posting all these. Your flock is bee-U-tiful!!!

ADORABLE! That's the first word that comes to mind after seeing all these lambs. They are just so cute.

I'm so impressed with your OB skills. I can tell you truly love and care for your flock. It's touching and wonderful.

Thank you for sharing all of this with us! I have really enjoyed it and learned a lot in the process.

Now, I'd love to see a picture with all the lambs together...hehe Can you imagine how hard that would be??!! hehe

Say it with me: Awwwwwwww!!!

Wow! I'm glad you know who is who. The ones with specific markings would be easy but the pure whites look so much alike ... not all. I expect their characters will differentiate them as well. What a hand full though! I'm surprised you found time to set out the new prompts. Thanks for that! Five more, eh?

Their little ears are too small for those tags, aren't they? I think the lop-eared look is universally charming on all of them! Great "kids" ya got there Nanc!

I'm partial to Urbana. Where do I send my shipping address? ;)

They are adorable - congratulations!

Ness said...

Awww!! Just beautiful!!! Even more impressive that you were able to find all those "U" names!

wow -- those are about the most adorable creatures ever! I know absolutely nothing about animal husbandry, but I am wondering how you control population? do the lambs get sold once they reach a certain age and you just keep a few for breeding stock?

Oh I LOVE Ulani!

They are so cute. And you have 5 more to go! Wow!

Nancy Chase said...

Hi Jen! I raise the sheep primarily to sell as breeding stock, so most of them will go join other flocks.

I'll choose some to stay here to improve and increase my own flock.

The rest will go into the freezer in October.
