It's A Girl!















At approximately 4:30pm on Saturday February 11th, ten year old Clare gave birth to our first lamb of 2006. She is a happy, healthy, darling, (and huge!) girl. Both mother and baby are doing fine and resting comfortably in their bonding pen.

Clare is from my very first crop of lambs. She was born back in 1996 along with Doll Face, Mary, Skinny Chip, and Big Chip. Congratulations also go to big sister And Posh (click here to learn how she came by that interesting name) and to my pal Alisha, who now shares her birthday with a sheep.

So what will her name be? I have no idea. We are up to "C" in our alphabet ewe lamb naming plan, but this baby girl can have a name that starts with absolutely any letter. Why? Because this is what I donated to the Menu For Hope back in December: honorary ownership of the first ewe lamb born in 2006. So that means lucky winner
Jennifer New and her family are in charge of naming their little woolly prize. Congratulations to Jennifer! (who was emailed first peek photos last evening). We can't wait to find out what you decide to name your new lamb.

    Good Luck Jennifer!

  17. Um, Susan, I hate to be the one to let the lambkey out of the bag, but that top picture looks very donkey-like. I think Dan and Clare may have been way too frienly last year. Looking on the bright side, Dan's a dad! LOL!

    Me and my smutty mind.

  25. I sure do miss seeing all the lambs in spring. I was born and raised in New Zealand, about 3.5 million people and 80 million sheep.
