As I had suspected, the younger barbados ewe had been carrying three little lambies. She is a younger heavier ewe, and a first time lamber - so this is a bit of an overwhelming experience for her. Her mother is the purebred barbados who twinned earlier in the month, and her father was a barbados x dorper cross. The 1/4 dorper blood makes her bigger and apt to throw some really interesting colors on lambs.

The lighter frosted lamb is a ewe, and the darker spotted and solid mahogany are little rams.

    I love that breed. We have some dairy goats and sometimes toy with the idea of getting a few hair sheep. Yours are gorgeous!!
