    Here's my two new sheep! We're picking them up tomorrow before we get my goats and lamb moved. Sorry that I don't have any better pictures, they were camera shy. :)

    Patch. She had a quad colored ram lamb this year. ;)

    Now I love this ewe! I think she's put together real nice. She doesn't have a name yet, so name suggestions would be GREAT! ;) She's white with cinnamon colored speckles all over.

  4. Very nice. If I ever got sheep I would have to go with the four horned ones. Well, they might be a ram but they look cool.

    Thank you! I like them a lot. :)

    Powderhooves, I love the name Truffle! I'll have to see if it fits her. :wink:

    And by the way all of the sheep will be getting their hooves trimmed soon, my boss and her husband have either been ill or off working (husband judges horse shows and boss has herding dogs) so I'm going to do it myself if I can get some help to wrestle them. :wink:

    Oh and here's the quad colored ram lamb that the first ewe had. I'm hoping for a ewe lamb like him to keep! lol

    Thank you! They are so cute, and curious after we moved them! They were "chasing" Chance's cat. :roll:

    Freckles won't work because it's also a name of a dog I work with, so I'd get so confused! lol And Truffle won't work because Chance has a dog named that. So we'd both get confused. :roll: Any other great name ideas? I'd greatly appreciate it! :greengrin:

    jdgray-do you mean the ram lamb? He's a cutie isn't he? Luckily he went to a home as a ram, so he gets to have babies! :clap:
     
  12. Yep, get me a goat that color any day. HEHE

    They are pretty and her ram is just out of this world - I hope you get a ewe like him - that will be so pretty!

    I have a friend that is currently looking for a couple Jacop sheep - she will be using their wool - I told her I would try and keep my eyes open :thumb: I think they are pretty cool looking and will enjoy looking at them when I go to her place lols. I wonder though if they are hard on fences lols! She just got several Shetland sheep - omg - they are sooooooo cute! I love the size - kinda like having tall Nigerians. I told her - if they do end up being bred (they where in with a ram before she got them) - I cannot go down to her place as I will want a baby lols.

    Can't wait to lambing season (did I say that correctly?) to see what they give you Crissa!
