Lambs

Louisa, one of our bottle-fed lambs. She's a triplet whose mom couldn't feed her.
 
Raggedy Lamb, who was going to be a sock monkey,  but with lambs on my mind she became one!
She has Blue Faced Leicester locks.

Its a marshmallow world in the winter...

A few of the Black Welsh Mountain ram lambs in winter wonderland.



First knitting using our wool that was made into yarn at A&B Fiberworks, Alberta.
Nice stitch definition with a high-twist, 2-ply that feels soft but will be very sturdy.

Happy Christmas and all the best wishes for your New Year!

The fall season comes around again

Sweet Pea, all grown up (October 2013)



We're still here at Newland Ranch. Some things never change,
the land, the sky, the passing seasons...

Some BFL cross lambs

Sweet Pea is 3/4 Blue Faced Leicester x Columbia/Targee



Some of the bottle-fed lambs. These are BFL x Corriedale/Arcott.

Premature Blue Faced Leicester "Luna" (one day old) in her work sock sweater.
She was less than 1 kg and it took a week for her eyes to open fully.

Sweet Pea and Luna racing around. At 3 weeks Luna is 4 kg
 and at 3 days old Sweet Pea is 5 kg.
