Ulyssia's Lamb: Xolo

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:
And now, for the results of this round of the 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!
