Here’s a little cuteness to welcome in your weekend.

Kevin found Dessie with her new twins during our scheduled mid-morning barn check. They were nestled in a corner of the barn that the pregnant ewes have been taking turns resting in. There were no complications (that we know of) and they were both walking and nursing by the time we found them.

They are exactly the color and patterns I had hoped for when I paired Dessie with our white ram, Fergus, and happily, both turned out to be ewes. I am overjoyed by their adorableness and the promise they carry with them for this little farm of ours!

Welcome Addie and Abbie.

Please excuse the less than stellar photos. Bad lighting in the barn (plus a very excited me using my iphone) equals not so great pictures. I would also like to give all the credit to PJ for naming the new little ones. We told him that all of this year’s names would have to start with an A and he ran with it from there. Have a happy weekend…we will most likely be spending it, in the barn, cuddling the twins! 🙂

  1. Thank you ladies! They are so much fun to have around! I should have added to the post that Addie is just white. Tan and white markings would have been amazing though! What you are seeing on her in the photos is just junk left from the birthing process that Dessie hadn’t cleaned off yet. 🙂

    • Lisa, thank you so much for the link and for thinking of me! Oddly enough, I saw mention of the magazine in my twitter feed yesterday and had tried to make a mental note to go back and check it out (I forgot, of course. ha!) so I am grateful for the reminder.

      Thanks for the encouragement too. 😉 Hope all is well with you!
