It's a boy

The first lamb of the season was born here just an hour or so ago. And it's a little ram baby. I wonder if we'll get any females this year. Last year all we got was males.

We have two more ewes than we had last year. A friend and neighbor gave them to us. One is a shetland which she got at the same time we got our original three. The momma pictured here is the one. The other is a full sized sheep, I'm not sure of the breed. A standard looking sheep with a black face.

Here in the first two pictures the momma named Pixy is cleaning off her new baby.

In this next picture the baby is looking for something to eat.

Ah, found the prize!
This little guy should do well!
