Lilly was the last ewe to lamb and on Easter Sunday, she had her twins.
First one out was a black ram lamb...Ebony.
Ebony's twin sister....Ivory.
Good girl Lilly :-)
Apple (above and below) fooled us into thinking she would have many lambs like last year when she gave birth to 5! Only 2 this year...a big ram lamb and a ewe lamb. Guy and Maddie.
Lacey with her quads. She's a great mom but needs a bit of help feeding all those hungry mouths.
Beckie with her twin ewe lambs....Midnight and Cloudy.
I am happily spinning Bailey's light silver fleece. The second bobbin is almost finished and then I will comb and spin a third for a 3 ply sportweight.
important. The higher percentage Gotland lambs are really gorgeous this year.
We are going to bring in two coloured Finn rams to breed this Fall. A grey Badgerface (that carries the Moorit gene) and a Moorit. Next year we will have a Swedish Gotland ram to continue with the Hubbert Farms Gotland upbreeding program. So plenty of natural coloured Finns and Gotlands for the future!! Can't wait :-)
