Frosty and Clarice

Our two youngest ewes gave birth this weekend. Veronica, who is just a month over a year old, gave birth earlier in the weekend. We were a little worried about her little lamb because he is so small. Yes, another ram lamb! We named him Frosty. He's a little guy, but his mom is very attentive to him. She wouldn't leave his side yesterday, and every time he tried to lay down in the snow, she made him get up and move. He's jumping around like a silly lamb this morning, so even though he looks scrawny, he's getting food in him!

This morning, we discovered that Peppermint Patty gave birth to a little black ewe lamb. I named her Clarice! Peppermint Patty is also very attentive. As first time moms, these two are doing a great job!
