2016 Lambs

For this year's temporary names we have decided to go with a theme.  This year's theme is Pride and Prejudice.  

 First lamb of the season.  This is a little ewe lamb, who we are calling Jane.  She is out of Elsa x Gunter.  Jane is the mellow sister who gets along with everybody, unlike her sister Lizzy who has a hard time with Mama.

 This is Elsa x Gunter's second ewe lamb.  We are calling her Lizzy.  The silver fringe on the backs of her ears distinguish her from her sister.  Also, this is the little ewe that we are having to use Elsa as a bottle for.

 This is Bingley and his twin sister, Caroline.  She is the blackest lamb we have had to date.  The picture is slightly deceiving as she is blacker than she looks.  I will try and get better pictures of her soon.
