Monday Daily Dose Of Cute #2

Zelda & Her Newborn Twins Yesterday Afternoon

© Copyright 2008 Farmgirl, the award-winning blog where we have a sheep named Zelda because back in 2004 when we decided to give all the ewe lambs born that year 'A' names (then 'B' names in 2005, 'C' names in 2006, etc. - which was a brilliant idea) I said to Joe, "This two-year old sheep needs a name!" and without skipping a beat he said, "Zelda." I asked why. "Because I doubt we'll ever make it to 'Z!'" It suits her perfectly.


  1. Joe might be surprised - the years go by faster than you realize already down to just 22 more to reach the Z'ssss SO glad birthing went well for Zelda - weather has suddenly turned quite warm so she was no doubt more than ready to reduce her carrying weight!

  2. Yay for Zelda! And yay for being one sheep closer to being done with lambing season!

  3. Love the daily doses of cute!

  4. Go Zelda! I hope I don't get that big if I ever have twins. Oy! and OW!!

  5. Hi there. I just visited your blog for the first time. I love the photography. –Keep up the good work!

  6. So glad Zelda's given birth now! Even better that she's had two black ones! Soooo gorgeous!

    Are you keeping them? Like Chip and Chip?

  7. Look at that waistline! She looks beautiful already after having her sweet twins.

    She'll be on US Weekly soon :)

  8. Such cute creatures. I was raised on a farm in Iowa and when I was a little girl, I had a pet lamb. Before my dad got into hogs and cattle, we had lots of sheep and sheared them in the spring. Boy your hands got a royal treatment by handling their wool! Your photos brought back memories! Thanks!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
