First Little Country lambs of 2009.


Wintertime Blues X Shelteringpines Arabesque. Fawn kat ram lamb, fawn smirslet kat ewe lamb. Tight fleeces on both.
Day 146 won't be until April 4th, so I'm not expecting a lot more action for another few weeks. Happy to have Arabesque out of the way, now I can quit worrying about her going early.

Congratulations on the twin Katmogets, Juliann! Nice way to kick off lambing. Now you can have fun with these babies while you're waiting for the rest of the ewes. Keep the pictures coming please!

Beautiful! I wouldn't mind having a kat to go with my gul. :-) Speaking of, little Bronwen has a consistent fleece, but it is very loose, not crimpy at all. Not a big deal to me, since I love to spin the longer, flowing, soft-silky intermediates like her dam.

You know the kat ewe I got from you a few years ago had 2 beautiful kat twin ewes, one was even a spotted kat. I have all 3 ewes and they have such beautiful wool. The one twin ewe gave me that polled ram when bred to Jed. last year. So my point is that I love your kat ewes!! Can't wait to see those white ewe lambs:)

What wonderful lambs-congratulations!

Congrats! I love the kats, I am hoping for some too. I think all my Shetlands are due that first week or so in April too. At least I have the cross lambs to keep us entertained until then and you have these too beauties.

Kara said...

Oops, TWO beauties, I'd better go drink my coffee!

Nice looking lambs! They should grow beautiful fleeces!

Juliann said...

Thanks everyone! I'm tickled.

Rayna, let me know if you are interested in one or both, you have first dibs. They don't carry polled and I haven't been breeding ewe lambs, so they'll be for sale if they are breeding quality.

Hey Juliann, I emailed you a question about trying to determine a ewe lamb's horn genetics by her skull shape, but haven't heard back from you. Did you get it?

Juliann said...

Hi Michelle,
It may have gone into my spam folder, I'll check and let you know...sorry about that, I always try to return e-mails pretty quickly...

Rayna said...

You have been emailed :)

Oh, those little ones are cute - our kat ewe didn't get bred for some reason this year - she's pretty tall, and Danny short? Or could be from being sick last year too.

Thanks for "stopping by" to see our first lambs and BTW, "Welcome" to the NW Shetland group! T.
