How're they doin?




Maaaaaaa?










This distinctive marking - the white patch on the top of Luna's head is called Krunet - although I think she could also be considered Moget, as that indicates white around the mouth & ears. (I love her little white Elvis Presley sideburns too.) Many of the Shetland marking & color names come from the old Norse language - for more Shetland colors & markings look on the North American Shetland Sheep Association (NASSA) web site: http://www.shetland-sheep.org/ , click on "The Gallery" then click on colors or markings.



John moved Regina & the babies outside yesterday - If it's not raining, I'm going to take a lawn chair out into the pasture and see if I can get some more pictures -

OK, Susie, the birthing suite (aka, lambing jug) is ready - you're up next.

Hi Tina,

How cute those little lambs are, and I like your cats too. :-) Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a lovely Easter!

The baby looks good...and you've got more coming! I hope Sinda and Neelix enjoy themselves with all the activity.

What lovely babies! I seriously miss having lambs this year...but how nice to experience them through others. And another good thing - I've learned, (one year later) that our little twin ewe is "krunet" marked also. Your picture is exactly like her markings (musket too!). I'm helpless at this identification thing until I see actual photos...

These lambs are so cute I can hardly wait for the next set to come! :->
And the Cat-Kids aren't bad either.

Hugs to you both, pats for the cats & sheep...I'm off to help Ralp re-install the tire-swing for Skit.

The lambs look precious. I hope it didn't get too cold for them outside.
