New Lambs!! Cotswold/Shetland Ewe Lambs!!

Life has been crazy in my realm of the world!
Lots of babies being born....so much to catch up on.
I have been trying to use my facebook for the farm more and getting more up to speed with social media.....I even have a "KIK" now thanks to my students!
Anyways, I wanted to share these lamb photos.  Addison, a black Cotswold/Shetland cross was bred by Milton, a black purebred Shetland.  These are the adorable twin ewe lambs she delivered on Saturday morning!



I was really surprised to see how much they look like purebred Shetlands! 
It  will be interesting to see what characteristics the wool takes on.
Addison is a first time mom and she is doing a great job with  her girls!
I will be  posting more as I have lots of babies and many to offer for sale!!

Wow those girls are cuties! Love the markings and color on the first one. I'm surprised too how Shetland they look. There is a little difference, but still, if you didn't know any different. It looks like the first one has a tiny tail, which is usually one of the first indications of mixed blood (it's generally longer than a purebred). Anyhoo. They are gorgeous and I bet their wool will be awesome!
Congrats!
Tammy

Barb,
Nice to hear from you!! I would love to take pics of spring lambs playing on green grass but all I got is mud and more mud! I hate this transition season. Hope to get more pics up soon....I have 11 lambs right now!!

Tammy,
Hey, so awesome to hear your "voice"!! I am so curious to see how the wool turns out too! I had another set of twins born and the mom is pure Cotswold and sire is pure Shetland. I docked those tails because they were super long. All the babies have been so awesome this year!! I hope you are pushing some warmer weather up my way:)
