OMG....Twin Gulmoget Ewe Lambs!!!!!

I am just a tad excited today because after 12 lambs being born, 10 of which were ram lambs, twin ewes have arrived at Harvest Thyme............

and how much better does it get when the twin ewes are gulmogets?????

Oh, yes, isn't she a little beauty!!!!!!!

I know my handsome black gulmoget Jedidiah is just laughing at me and shaking his head.
He knows I love him for giving me these beautiful little ewe lambs. Mom is a black smirslet and her dam is also a black smirslet and her sire was a mioget, yuglet ram.

Oh, my, I am so excited!!! When I came home from school today and pulled my van into the backyard to unload some feed I glanced over at the big barn saw her sitting under the overhang. At first I thought one of the other baby lambs had gotten out of the "nursery" pen but then I saw 2 lambs and I went running over. I remained "calm" as the 2 miniature horses came walking over to me. It was obvious that she had had the babies a while ago because they were dry and quite content sitting next to her. I picked up the babies and she followed me into the barn and into the "nursery". Image how excited I was to find no little testicles! I think I checked that a million times because I could not believe there were none.
And they are such pretty little girls!!!!!
I mean gulmoget twin ewes!!!!!

Yes, Kristi, there is a Santa Claus!!!!

OMG is right! They are beautiful! With some bling no less, congrats! Are these two keepers? How many have you decided to keep this year? You sure have some beauties to choose from. Congrats again!

Melanie,
you forgot to say which of those silly rams you are taking? Prices will be vey reasonable on all those rams:)

Kara,
I will definitely be keeping one of the gulmoget ewes and selling the other. The white ram with yuglet markings is staying as is his twin moorit smirslet sister. All the spotted boys (all have horn buds starting) will be offered for sale as will ALL the other ram lambs plus the moorit ewe out of Savannah (who is a mioget ewe)....still have one more ewe to lamb:)
