Today’s latest addition (as of 2pm EST), Gazorpazorpfield, rests inside after getting a bottle of milk to help kickstart his metabolism on this 0-degree F (-18C) day.

In order of birth:

  • Morty, male, black, 1/2 Cormo, 1/2 Blue-faced Leicester
  • Summer, female, white, 1/2 Cormo, 1/2 Blue-faced Leicester

^-siblings, mother: Bobolink

  • Gordon Lamb(ram)sey, male, white, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester (bottle lamb)
  • Sue Perkins, female, speckled-black, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester (bottle lamb)

^- siblings, mother: Little Moose (first time, doesn’t know how lambs work)

  • Dame Maggie Smith, female, white, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester
  • Dame Judi Densch, female, black, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester

^- siblings, mother: Dalek

  • Gazorpazorpfield, male, white, 1/2 Cormo, 1/2 Blue-faced Leicester (pictured: he’s a little slow, he needs some help in this bitterly cold weather, but he’s going back with his mom soon)
  • Krombopulous Michele, female, black, 1/2 Cormo, 1/2 Blue-faced Leicester

^- siblings, mother: Peggy (our oldest ewe)

  • Ewenity, female, white, 1/2 Cormo, 1/2 Blue-faced Leicester

^- single, mother: Meadowlark. In four years of lambing Meadowlark has never had twins :P we would like to discourage these low-yield genetics, but she’s a great mom and a good sheep.

  • Pencilvester, male, VERY white, 1/2 Cormo, 1/2 Blue-faced Leicester

^- a single child of our most wild ewe, Valentine, he is a beautiful, tall, long boy and has blue eyes!

  • Matt Smith, male, black, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester
  • David Tenant, male, black, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester
  • River Song, female, black, pure-bred Blue-faced Leicester

^- triplets from Tardis, a ewe that could probably succeed in dairy, with an udder that would shame some Holsteins... Unfortunately Matt Smith is a bit of a moron and has trouble nursing, so we’re supplementing him on the bottle. Both Gordon and Sue have begun nursing from their mom —Little Moose— so there is some extra bottle milk to go around...

lambs are solar-powered, in case you weren’t aware...
