BFL Babies Begin Arriving

Even though it 14 degrees and windy last night Icy lambed. Appropriate name since Icy is always my lead lambing BFL in late January. The lambs were not affected by the cold at all since mom picked a really cozy spot to have them. She is the prefect mother. The lambs are sired by one of Robina's rams of Blackmoor/Titus lines. Icy is CH V2/Loyalty. Both lambs are long and sturdy. The ram lamb has beautiful color and a fine fleece. Full moon tonight so I expect more action in the barn. That makes our total 5 natural colored high % BFL lambs and 2 white BFL. We've just begun and my hands already ache from the cold!

Lambs already, oh, how exciting! I love seeing the lamb photos. I've got two months to wait here before any lambs arrive. I'm enjoying the down time though. Best of luck with the rest of your girls.
