New Sheep

While buying hay I noticed the farmer's hair sheep. I said I wanted to get hair sheep and he said he wanted to get rid of his. The mama has a good bit of hair sheep in her breeding but she was bred to a non-hair sheep ram so her lambs are less than 50% hair sheep.
She had two lambs this spring. The ram lamb is the smaller, but friendlier, of the two lambs.

The ewe lamb is bigger than her brother and we are calling her "lamb chop." The lambs will probably go to "Iceland" in a few months as I don't want to get into the whole sheep shearing chore. And we love lamb!
