I will say this often, but you never know how well these young lambs will develop, but this one has promise. He appears to have very long legs in this picture, but I'm already seeing his proportions shaping up as he grows. You like to have a proper length to height ratio in rams, so we will be watching this one grow. Lambs are always out of proportion at his age anyway. Always lots of leg.
That was pretty much it for the leisurely portion of lambing as they came fast and furious after that starting with Whispering Pines Sherrie at 3 AM on 4/23, the first of two lambings that day. Sherrie is one of our two year olds that we have been waiting two years for. She is out of our Blue Sapphire, so lots of fantastic genetics we have been waiting to use. Canterbury is the sire of both of these ewe lambs.
Turin waited until 11:30 in the morning to give us these two ewe lambs out of Canterbury. Turin is a producer, I'll give her that. I'm finding that to be the case in the Pompey Magnus daughters. All of them have produced consistently well, which is why we still have so many of them. Again, great fleece uniformity and crimp. We are getting a lot of moorits this year, which is a good thing.
That's it for now. Tomorrow I'll get through April 24th, which was notable for the fact that it was the first time we had three ewes lamb on the same day, and only the second time we had two lamb at the same time. As stressful as that sounds, I actually prefer it.
