The End of Lambing Season (again).

This morning, young Faola had a single ewe lamb.

I watched from the kitchen window until she got serious and then headed outside to watch closer up.

It happened pretty quickly and there was some serious cleaning up to be done.

Faola didn't let her up until she was completely clean.

By then the wee one was pretty hungry and started looking for some groceries. I tucked them into a jug and watched until the baby had her belly full and settled in for a well deserved nap.

Another Mull carbon copy! We will have plenty of flashy grey sheep. I love grey! It is pretty as a natural color and when over dyed with color it gets an unusual and interesting depth to the color in a tweedy sort of look.

My favorite markings are the backs of the ears! Eye spots. Warning coloration; "I can see you with the eyes I have in the back of my head!" Faola is best pleased.




  1. So many delightful wee lambs. It almost makes me want to raise sheep!

  2. Oh yes the ear spots are super cute, but so is she. :)
