Announcing the Arrival of Donard (yes, Donard not Donald)!

Caramel and Donard in their jug

Baby Donard made his debut at our farm on March 12th. Caramel gave birth to him at 10:30 in the morning.

This was Caramel's first time to be a mom and she has done an excellent job of mothering her baby!

Even though Caramel was only one year old and Donard was a large lamb, she delivered the baby fairly quickly!

Donard - 14 lbs. 4 oz.

Donard is three-quarters Romney and one-quarter Hampshire. Foreman is his father and Edison is his grandfather. Donard is named after a dear friend of ours whom we knew while living in Houston, Texas.

Well his namesake was never accused of being very small so I suppose it fits! ;-)

Such a handsome fellow. Looks like he's quite pleased with himself. And those EARS!
