New Lambs!

A warm night got these new lambs off to a great start! They are the first offspring of our new black or grey herdsire. Their mother is two. Two are ram lambs and one black one is a ewe lamb. Both black lambs have white on their hind feet.

The legs go through the treadle bar which, I believe, indicates a Baltic or Germanic influence.
