FIRST LAMBS OF 2008 AT MILEHAUS FARM



Our first lambs of the 2008 lambing season were born on Tuesday March 18th. It is still very winterlike here with 12 inches of snow on the ground and temperatures dropping to -12C (10F)at night. WillowGarden Kitty Fisher, who was bred to WillowGarden Rex Harrison , gave us a gorgeous spotted ram lamb and an HST ewe lamb. Although our breeding goals are moving towards a softer, finer, crimpier fleece on our Shetlands, I do enjoy a few "spotties" born each year.

What fun to see all that color and flash! Won't have any of that here this year, so I enjoy seeing it elsewhere. Congratulations!

I LOVE the little moorit and white, HST! The black & white flecket is adorable too, of course, but I'm a sucker for those HST markings. He/she (?) looks like a kitten!
