And Who Are You Lookin' At?

This is one of Amanda's twins. He is so radically different in personality than the ram lamb (DH's buddy) of Lacey's. He actually acts like a ram - kind of stand-offish and will get close on his terms only. You could say we have mutual respect for each other. Right now I'm trying to decide if he stays, or goes on to become a sire for someone else as he is related to all the other sheep I have. While he is Amanda's boy, Amanda and Lacey are half-sisters. (This is starting to sound like things I heard about when I was stationed in Alabama!) :)
He's got good conformation and looks like he will have some good horn.
Hmmmm...this may be a hard decision in some respects. But as every Shepherdess knows, you just can't keep them all!

Hi Kathy - Sounds like you're having a good time with your new sheep friends. We took delivery of a new (spotted!) ewe lamb from Donna & Tom Sutherland on Saturday and get rid of two tomorrow - lady down the street who fell in love with them as she walked her daily constitutional.
I'm so glad that the fires have stopped down there - sounds like the rain came at the best time!
Take care! Tina (Marietta Shetlands in B'ham WA)
