TINY LAMB


This tiny lamb was born in a set of quads yesterday. She weighs under two and a half pounds. There is a six inch ruler beside her for scale. She is tiny, but is going great guns.
She couldn’t stand up at first, but today she can. She was too small to leave with her mother and big boisterous brothers and bigger sister.

The brownish coloring on the back of her neck and eartips are phaeomelanin. It is similar to the Tunis lambs that are born with red wool that gradually fades to white.
