It's taken me a while to catch up with everything that's been going on here, but here at last are photos of the last of this spring's lambs.
True to her attention-seeking personality, Ultra (aka Ultra the Fairy Sheep) had her lambs two days early, just so she could have them in the middle of the school field trip that brought 15 kindergarten students to our farm on May 7. Even though it was Ultra's first time having lambs, she did it all without any assistance, and without being at all concerned about the VERY enthusiastic interest of so many children.
Ultra's lambs (by Scimitar) are a moorit gray girl named Xahara and a black gray boy named Xaeran. Both of these names were submitted to our Name That Lamb contest by Laurel McGilvery (no web link given).
And here's Xaeran:
Finally, the very last lamb of the year. On May 14, Rhonwen had a moorit badger mouflon girl, by Scimitar. A super-cute, fast-growing lamb with very fancy coloring. Her name is Xantara. This name was submitted to our Name That Lamb contest by Laurel McGilvery (no web link given), although I'm also giving credit to Carol at http://plumpfairy.etsy.com, for suggesting the almost-identical name, Xantera.
Now that all the lambs are here, I just need to compile a list of all the successful entries for the Name That Lamb contest. Everyone who submitted a name that I ended up using for a lamb will get an entry into the drawing (or more than one entry, if I used more than one name they submitted).
Thanks so much to everyone who entered! I would never have had such an easy and fun time finding this many "X" names without your help.
I'll announce the winner on Monday, so stay tuned!
