First Lamb of the 2017 Season!

Late on the evening of the 21st of February, Animal Instinct’s Carmen, our herd’s ‘matriarch’, gave birth to our first lamb of the season!  It is a little off-white ewe-lamb.  Carmen’s daughter, Equinnox Joy, and her daughter, Sheepdog, are both still expecting.  Last year, Joy gave us twins, so I hope that she will twin again, and that Sheepdog will take after her.  Fingers crossed!

I am finishing up forms and photographs needed to get the herd properly registered (finally!) with NABSSAR, so by the time they are ready for new homes, I should registration papers available for those that want them.

I will not know how many lambs, or of what sex(es), will be available until after the other two girls give birth.  I may place lambs only, or I may place a lamb with mother… we will see.   I expect only off-white lambs.  I likely will be rehoming Diego, who is the father of these lambs.  He was just born last year.  And I will thus be looking for a new ram to replace him, so I am open to trades.
