Peek-a-Boo Fleece

The 3 of the 4 lambs that were born this year are all really friendly, though the little gully girl still thinks I am some strange alien from outer space.  I mean we only see each other every day but whatever.
I have been attempting to get some fleece pics of the lambs but you know with the wonderful humidity and pleasantly oppressive temperatures plus silly little lambs squirming around when you get ahold of them...well, it has not been successful.  Its like playing a game of peek-a-boo with me, them, and the camera.

Today I was able to get a pretty good pic of the black ewe lamb........

.....peek-a-boo, its looking pretty good in there! Jed and Savannah are just a match of good genes! I am quite pleased with this black little ewe!

Bethel is such a character! She is insanely friendly and her and I are usually joined at the hip during morning chores. She likes to talk to me too, lots of conversation about lamb life.

This is one of the nicest fleeces I have gotten from a spotted lamb so I feel I am making progress. Though I will ask, do I call this grey when I register her? Or do I go blk/white?

Now where is that gully girl?
She likes to play peek-a-boo with me.........
