Buttercup & Basil

Bide-A-Wee's Buttercup resting with her ram lamb, Cedar Pond's Basil. Basil is as big as his mother and I have heard him baaing mournfully because his mother will not let him nurse any more. Can you blame her? Just look at the size of his horns! I have seen him ram her udder to bring her milk down and it looks awfully painful, and downright deadly to me. I think Basil looks very much like his father, Goth. He is mighty handsome and on his way to being a very big ram with great horns. ( I might be a bit biased about this though)

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!
