Alan got home from work last evening in time to find Hazel cleaning off her new ram lamb. By my accounting she wasn't due for at least another 2 weeks, but I guess she knew better. Our first Coopworth lamb, bred and born on our farm!
He is nearly 10 pounds and she is very attentive. Looking for names beginning with the letter "H." She was hiding this pregnancy very well, partly because of her sheep coat, but she wasn't any where near as big as the other sheep just before they delivered. Even Ruthie looks bigger. Could she be having twins? I would really love a Coopworth ewe lamb.
