A double dose of cuteness

My next-door neighbor’s sheep gave birth to these adorable twin lambs on Thursday. Yesterday we went over to see them.

It’s all about black and white! I just love their markings! They seem to be a reverse of each other; both ewes.

Their mother is part Jacob and they bred her to a full Jacob ram.

Too cute! Right now their back legs are too long and have way too much power for their little bodies. It was fun to see them sprint around trying to control all that spring.

I love the white topknots. They look like little wigs placed on top of their heads!

A kiss for mom!

I got to hold this one. She snuffled my nose and let out a tiny baaaaaaa right in my face. She was so sweet to hold. I was amazed how tightly the hair was curled on her body. The little whorls of wool felt like tiny french knots.

Her other sheep, which is a sister to this one, has yet to lamb. It will be fun to see what her babies look like since they were bred to the same ram. They are afraid she might be having triplets since she is so large. You can be sure I’ll be paying a visit next door once the second big event happens.

Adorable!!

How sweet!  And what a good mother.  I see her keeping an eye on you!  I hope the ‘cousins’ arrive safely, too!

What sweet faces!

How cute is that.  Spring is my favorite time of the year…everything new!
p.s. made your asparagus this week-end.  Also some split pea soup grin  Totally a hit.  Plus, my husband was eating the mustard/mayo sauce on everything!  Thanks for sharing Lynne.

How sweet!! They’re adorable.

I thought they might be Jacobs.  Very nice fleece!  Very cutey pie babies.

They are cute, I have to agree with all of you!

Debra, good to know you are making some of the recipes!

Becky, the fleece she got last year had tons of lanolin in it and wherever she sent it to be processed I don’t think they did it justice. Very coarsely spun.
