This is Lil'Country Josie, my only mioget. This is the ewe lamb I had on the truck last year to ship to market, but pulled her off the last minute.
Justalit'l Grace's ewe lamb has nothing really remarkable about her. I am retaining this lamb, as Grace will be going to a new home this summer. Grace is my last Bramble Dixen daughter, so has some sentimental value to me. I might name this lamb Dixie Cup.
Both Valora and Queen Anne had black ewe lambs that are better in quality than Grace's lamb. Above is Valora's girl. She's a big, strong girl who is very elegant and expressive.
My best friend Denise brought her sheep down to be sheared, and I haven't brought them back to her yet. Denise has a purebred Cheviot, and a Shetland-Cheviot that were exposed to my BFL ram last fall. Above is the Cheviot mule. What a nice cross, so big and thick! Isn't she just gorgeous?
I caught all the lambs up yesterday for their first deworming. I will also treat the water for the next 7 days with Coxi-stop. I checked everyone's bites, and testes on the rams. So far so good.
Meadow's ram lamb and Easter Day's ram lambs are both smooth polled. "Mr. Pink Nose" (Cleopatra's lamb), Chalmeaux's and Carmella's lambs have small scurs. Adriana's & Netty's lambs will be horned.
