Some updated photos...

Couldn't get many, because I didn't realize it, but my camera was VERY low on batteries when I got to moms, but I got some photos :) It's charging now, and moms laid off for a month, so she'll have plenty of time with the puppies! They're playing pretty good and teething like mad right now. Hopefully I'll get more photos this weekend :)

Buggy kitty
Bugaboo again
Baby llama!

What'r yoooouu lookin' at?

Sheepies in the quonset
Baby Noodle...still just a little sprite.
Our two resident poop machines...The male is an Embden X (probably toulouse), and the female is a Canada X Embden. I doubt the female is fertile, but she only cost $1 and is pretty to look at lol. The male was free cuz he was the last a friend of ours had out of a flock of about 50 that got wiped out by mink and fox. They're pretty to look at and they'll help keep the grass down in the spring and summer. They live outside the barn so they can't accumulate so much poop inside! lol. They love it and sleep either next to the swans or in a dog house in the barnyard when it's really cold :)
Sleepy Neener.

One of my girls peeking out of my shirt. This photo was taken a few weeks ago...they're growing every day!And finally, I just LOVE this boy, but I think his horns are going fatal. His mom is Minwawe Magnolia, and I just love his cute fuzzeriffice face! He's got crimp coming in and he's modified...and his fleece is UBER soft. And he's starting to get might wether him anyway and sneak him in the flock...'Sure mom, SHE'S just got horns.....' lol

I think he's too young to pass judgement, personally. Those tips could still make that all-important turn.... Just sayin', 'cause he sounds WONDERFUL!

Thanks for sharing all the photos. The cria is super cute and so is that little guy with the "iffy" horns. Who had baby Noodle? I love the geese too. And yes, you're right, they are poop machines. LOL

Noodle is Willows son, my last lamb of the year from my oldest girl. Willow isn't getting bred this year, which is super sad cuz I was hoping to get a girl out of her before I retired her because she's my baby, but she'll just have to live forever I guess :)

Yeah, I'll have to get some fleece shots of that boy and get his fleece sample in. It's just so hard to get in there right now with the big boys being naughty. My mom hates the cracking sound of head bashing, so she's willing to put up with extra pens until Likei goes back in with the girls and we're gonna put Arturo in at the same time and probably squish them up in a corner so they aren't naughty. These young Minwawe boys aren't naughty yet, and this little guy will usually come up to you in hopes of corn. He's not plump, is he? *whistles and looks the other way...*

Hi Rayna,
I agree-- his horns might be just fine!
cute cute face.
