16 lambs born in 2019, Leda we think is not pregnant
S"more Arabesque (x UTS Mancera) went into active Labor about 3 pm Easter Sunday. About 9:15 pm she gave birth to a black ewe lamb (named Biscotti) who carries spotting, and by 10 pm she had two lovely ewe lambs--the second one (named Brioche) is black with white spotting on head, socks, and tail. .. GT Talitha (x GT Lancelot) gave birth to triplets the following morning, April 22. First born is a large Agouti gray ewe whom we named "Fritatta"; 2nd born was a very small white ilget ewe (only 2.7 pounds) whom we are calling Mini-muffin, AKA "Minna"…

2019 lambs born on 4/12/19
GT Gussalyn X UTS Mancera, spotted gray ram lamb and black ewe lamb, DOB 4/8/19
Moorit ewe lamb named Patacone, single, born to GT Malkyn, who is turning 2 years old soon and is the most petite of our dual registered (NASSA/FFSSA) musket ewes. WP Leego, our 2 yr old moorit ram, is the proud sire. Malkyn is mothering up splendidly to her pretty little girl, who weighed 5.8 pounds once dried off. Brunch is our naming theme. My friend Louise Young earned the right to name Patacone. A Patacone is a golden brown, football-shaped fried Plantain served at Panamanian brunches. Louise and I have both spent significant time in Panama, but we were there…
We have spent the last month getting ready for lambing. What we do and how we time it have specific reasons in the linked MS Word Document. April snow fall is common here. No lambs yet but if any ewes were bred on first ram exposure day, the lambs are due in just a few days, so we are watching and waiting...
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Fingerless mitts I made for a friend from upcycled, fulled sweater sleeves. I added to the thumb area and also added the ribbed cuffs you see here.
Leego and Russ, who is pleased both yearling rams are behaving, halos for the boys! Lionel and Thorian, Our Angels all the time, even in breeding season... Ellie and Terry, trying to behave, but don't let them fool you... From All of Us At Glen Tamarack Some of our ewes who ALWAYS behave themselves!
