Our ewe Ulyssia surprised us yesterday morning by giving birth 4 days early. She had a single white ram lamb, who was up, dry and fed by the time we discovered him. Because of the heavy rains predicted, I brought them in for the night, but they are both back out in the pasture again now.
This picture looks like he's yelling, but it was actually a big yawn:
Name That Lamb contest!
This lamb's name is Xolo, because that sounds a bit like "solo." Not only was this lamb a single, he also has a really, really loud voice, and is quite capable of making himself heard even if he is singing solo! The name was submitted by Carol of Loafkeeper Farm. Thanks Carol!
