Sheepies look great :)

Of course...at the top...my baby Thor :) He's such a honey! And still sooooo soft. Actually thinking about wethering him this year because there is likely no way to get him registered :(

An ALWAYS fat Magnolia. I would hope she's carrying quads this year, but she looked the same last year with twins...hell, she looks the same when she's NOT pregnant...lol. Not wormy, doesn't seem to get too much grain/hay...just is a hefty girl! lol

Silver, our 1/2 Shetland gulmoget spotted ewe lamb. Her other half? Your guess is as good as ours...Goldie is an oddball :)

Beautiful Maid Marion hopefully isn't a maid anymore...:D She's really coming into herself, actually looks more like I thought Alice would...I actually THOUGHT she was Alice the other day, the ear tag gives it away though...because she looks exactly like Alice's mom, Bedegrayne.
And Alice!
Another shot of Maggie :)
And for Ginny...Dory! My beautiful little gulkat out of Torrent and Likei
Trying to get a photo of Raja, nearly impossible...
Chalmeaux :)
Torrent
Mary Poppins
Princess Aurora
This little guy is likely going to be for sale! He's a poll carrier/half poll out of Wintertime Blues X Glenmore March Madness. He is an Ag fawn katmoget. SUPER soft handle, wide crimp.

And mr. Lightning McQueen will likely be staying here. Mom calls him "boyfriend" because he loves her lol. He is Sheltering Pines Cornet X Wintertime Blues. And unfortunately has rooed all his beautiful neck wool! lol. He has little bone knobs, but nothing more. I put each boy over the others mother, so hopefully will get full poll lambs! I decided it can't hurt to have a polled line...right?

March...My old girl. She's such a doll, and I LOVE her face!


Now I need to get my lambs registered asap! Been procrastinating. Had a lot of life changing events happen this year, I'm lucky I even remember to renew my NASSA membership. Lambs will be late this year, and other than the two ewes for the polled line, all lambs will be sired by White Pine Philemon, so probably not too many spots this year as he's solid, but I'm hoping he passes on his wool quality to all his lambs. I still have to find a really nice white ewe this year, so be on the lookout for me! :) I also need to get fleece samples taken! Gah! So behind, so behind.

I'm so far behind this year, I have no theme picked out! Year before lasts was Norse gods, last year was Disney...I'm just at a loss this year!

Wow Maggie is one wide load. I think she looks very cute though. There does never seem to be enough time to get everything done does there?
