Would You Mess With This Lamb's Mama?

Look at the expression on Valkyrie's face I captured when I snapped her picture.

I was trying to get a good picture of her son, Viking. Viking's father is Swallow Lane Barnaby.
I am getting excited about him. His horns are looking good. His markings are nice. He has blue eyes too. He is pretty big, and although he was the last born lamb here he is among the bigger lambs. To get to him though you have to confront his mama....
...does she look like a creature you want to cross? ( note that she has 5 horns)
Hmm, look at his stance in this photo. He is going to be one big and beautiful Jacob Ram and I think he knows it!


  1. Great photos! I love the expression on Mama's face, boy does she look like she means business. :)

  2. He is a good looking little fellow - hope he has a better attitude than Goth! She looks like she thinks you are wanting to pull him away from her - watch out - mama's on duty!

  3. Levijane, she really does mean business! I have a hard time separating them without fear for my safety. Good mama sheep like her are priceless though and I appreciate her.

    Linda Sue, I hope he has a better attitude too. He is striking though, thus far. We'll see as his horns develop. You're right though, Mama is very much "on duty" !

  4. Nice pictures and I don't think I want to cross Valkyrie!


  5. Amy, thank-you, and when I mess with Valkyrie I keep her horns pointed in the other direction!
