I'm sure the average person thinks all sheep and lambs look alike. These pictures prove differently. This first picture is the smallest lamb from the second set of quads. He doesn't look anything like his siblings: hair coat or otherwise. He's a full-time bottle baby. One hundred percent Katahdin.
I call this lamb "L'tl Red." She's a triplet. 82 percent Katahdin x 18 percent White Dorper. At first her dam (550) didn't want to let her nurse. I used a head stanchion to change her mind. Now, they're a "happy" family.
This sweet little face is of a ewe lamb from a set of triplets. She is 91 percent Katahdn x 9 percent White Dorper. Her mom is raising her second litter.
There are still several more ewes to lamb, including the yearlings. My dad's ewe lambed today.
