Our final planned lamb was born Friday evening.  He is a beauty!  A silver, black Coopworth - Border Leicester cross out of Hebe and Liam.  Weighing in at 13 lbs 1 oz, he is a whopper!  Now the wait is on to see if Blackberry, our old girl who escaped into the breeding pen, got caught.  We sure hope not, but we've got a few more weeks to find out for sure.
Many thanks to our Mom for all her help in the barn this lambing season... feeding hay, filling water buckets, feeding Robbie and much more.  This was a tough one to get through.  But we are excited to say that we didn't lose a single lamb (close a couple times), didn't have to pull a single lamb, and all the ewes came through great.  We are feeling very blessed.


  1. He is a beautiful one! Congratulations on a very successful season - and Happy Mother's Day to you (and all the new moms)!

  2. I think I could take him home with me and love him forever. Black is my favorite color for lambs.

  3. congrats to you! (and hope this is all!)
