Adorable! What breed?

I'm in the midst of lambing as well. Five healthy lambs on the ground so far with three ewes still to lamb.

Your lambs are so cute and look very healthy. The ewe is gorgeous is she a Shetland?
Mine are Icelandic x East Freisian / Lacoun.

Yes, Kris, they are Shetlands! Lily is a heavy milking ewe, so even her twins grow like weeds--and she turns 11 next month....

The Icelandic/East Friesian cross you have should give you not only lovely natural colored fleeces, but heavy milking capacity I think?

So glad you started the thread as I think we all need some lamb cuteness in our lives right now as we get hit with stay at home orders.

So this is number 2 being born, it started around 7pm


Two of the kidlets were cold and shivering it was around freezing, so we brought them inside to warm up and dry off. The one who is lying on my partner is the female we plan to keep


All of the goats


3 kidlets(1 female, 2 males) and momma!
