Lamba Ramma Ding Dong

I have more pictures of sheep and lambs at Sea Ranch to share.  These were taken March 1 through March 3, 2013.

Little Button Eyes

There are 200+ lambs at the moment.

Guess how many rams are involved?

I love the mama and lambie in profile, below.

Like Mama Like Baby

Such a wee little lamb.

They can really make a ruckus.  Here is a link to a very short video: Sea Ranch Sheep & Lambs

Blackie

This sheep was chewing her cud and baaing, but I think she looks like she is chuckling at a good joke.

Here is another short video – I love the little “meh” near the beginning: So many cute Sea Ranch Sheep & Lambs

And, in case you missed these pictures from my previous post:

I love those little pink ears.

Little Lamb

This little sweetie looks like she was (he?) was dipped into a pot of black ink and only the tip of her tail and the top of her head are still white.

You can see more about the herd at The Sea Ranch Sheep Facebook page.

The question: Just how many rams fathered all the lambs (200+) in the Sea Ranch herd?

The answer: 2!  I understand they would do the job in a week or so, given the chance, but they are not allowed to complete the task so quickly.  It is preferable not to have all the new lambs born at the same time.

Thanks, as always, for the visit.
