Lamb pool #1 winner!

Maryann wins the prize as she called March 15th at 6AM! Betsy and I will throw all the other names in a hat and pull one more winner this weekend. Stay tuned! Better jump in on the next pool for Hazel's lambs below now though...it could be closer than we thought!

Georgia lambed this morning somewhere near 7AM! Twins! This is the CVM ram lamb nursing, the CVM ewe lamb had just had a drink and is resting in the warming box. Everyone is healthy. Both lambs have the correct markings for CVM/Romeldale breed standards. The ewe lamb is already a nice gray with spots and her fleece will soften and darken as she ages which wil make it yummy fiber! The ram lamb is white to creamy right now.

Once the little ram lamb was done nursing he went right to the warming box with his sister and instantly went to sleep!

Here is Betsy MacIssac with the proud ewe. Georgia's first lambs and not only did she lamb at a pleasant hour of 7AM, but she did it unassisted and gave twins first year! Three cheers for Georgia!

  3. Congrats to Maryann! I so called the twins- Georgia's belly really looked somewhat pendulous. They are adorable lambs!
