More Lamb Love

Sara-I LOVE these pictures! Thanks again for capturing some of my babies.

In answer to a question about the breed of sheep I'm raising at Tanglewood, nearly all the lambs this year are sired by a Wensleydale. The last four ewes to lamb were bred to a Cotswold/Border Leicester ram. The ewes are mostly BFL/CVM/Romney combinations. I'm breeding for fleece softness, luster and length.

Those wee ears drooping under the weight of a tag make me a little sad. I know; it's silly….

Ed said...

Not to worry. That used to make me sad too, but they stand back up in no time :-).

Another bunch of great shots.

My fave is the white lamb looking straight at us, with the light shining through a fuzz-edged ear. And its hairy leg-warmers. :-)

Lordy, are they cute! If I came to visit, I would leave with one in every pocket!! I do think that you should be the Official Lambie and Sheepie Photographer of the Nation. I really do.

So adorable! I love lamb season. And the droopy ears aren't sad to me. They just make the lambs looks a little tipsy...and make me laugh!

Dianne MacDonald said...

I'm not crazy about the tags either, but their ears do perk up pretty quickly. When lambing is finished this year, I'll have about 30 lambs running around and, without the tags, remembering which lambs go with which ewe becomes too much of a mental challenge for me!

Michelle said...

They do make smaller, lighter tags; I use them for my Shetlands' little-bitty ears. And since I don't have a lot of lambs, I have the luxury of waiting until absolutely necessary – like when they leave for a new home or go to a show – before piercing their heretofore perfect ears. I don't have pierced ears, either; can you tell? heh ;-)

Spinners End Farm said...

We use those smaller tags too (when we have to); they don't seem quite as intrusive! Those are some sweet babies. :)

Lindsay Hermanson said...

I was just wondering about which ears are tagged, I noticed that black one had the opposite ear than the others and wondered if one side was for ewes and the other for rams.

Willow said...

Okay I have fully decided there is nothing cuter than baby lambs , well at least not right at this moment.

Such adorable lambs - but poor babies getting those huge tags. Hopping their poor ears grow into the tags?
Just beautiful photos of little sweeties!

Dianne MacDonald said...

The boys get tags in their left ears and the girls have them in their right ears. Believe me, they do grow into those tags. Their ears will be up in a matter of weeks. These are not little bitty sheep. The ewes will end up 150-200 pounds and the rams more like 300 pounds.
