Lamb Number 10 is Born Today

Last night I was pretty sure that Miss Abby, my FAVORITE ewe (she is a twin kat ewe born here) was going to lamb. So I put her in the new "nursery" area. This morning she was fine, going about her business as usual. Of course, today's high temps were to be 86-87 degrees so after school I ran into the petstore & JoAnn Fabrics real quick and was home right away. The dogs were having a fit because I went right back to the barn to check on Abby.

Yep, Abby had her baby. I was thinking twins because she was so big, but she had one big lamb.............and keeping with the theme this lambing season........a RAM LAMB!!!!

He is so big...he is the largest lamb out in the nursery area and he was just born. He is beautiful and very flashy, with horn buds of course. His right eye patch (your left) is not a complete yuglet marking but the left side is. But oh, he is nice!! If everything goes accordingly with him, he will be offered for sale. Drop me a line if you might be thinking spots.

Seriously, he is so cute! I am so loving all these spots this year........now if a few of them would have the big "V" instead of the "P" I would be even more excited:) There is hope as I have 3 more ewes to lamb.......someone has to have a ewe in there somewhere!!!!!!

I think that is perhaps the cutest spotted lamb I have seen anywhere this season...I love the knee patches...

I'm with Melanie and all the rest -- that is one of the neatest set of spots I've ever seen!

I haven't seen a more cuter/unique lamb,he needs to come to FL;)We definetely don't have anything like that around here.

He's just drop dead gorgeous Kristi. You have me wishing I had more property.

Thank you everyone for stopping by to see him! Abby is being a very good mom and does not want anyone near her "prize boy":)
Kara, I know I was thinking the same thing, poor Jed. He did such a good job last year!

Would you give Jammer a rest already! Congrats on the new cutie (although shouldn't the congrats go to Abby & Jammer?)
