Buttercup's first lamb is HST - Rich

Whispering Pines Buttercup had her first lamb on Thursday morning. This was the first year we bred Buttercup because we thought she was a touch small as a lamb. She’s still a touch small for a two year old, but she did a great job without my interference with this lamb! This little ewe lamb is very interesting! She is an HST moorit smirslet, but she has a yuglet patch on one side! I think that’s really cool! Jen says she's a "Smuglet". Buttercup and the ram she was bred to (Windswept White Pine) both have outstanding conformations, so I would expect this lamb to as well. She’s only about an hour old in this picture.

That is one of the most striking lambs I have ever seen! Your ewes keep outdoing each other - congratulations!
