Black and White !

On Sunday morning our ewe Dale, delivered twins. Dale is quick when it comes to giving birth! She delivered her babies, got them up, and nursed them in under one hour! Dale likes to have her lambs when we aren't looking. We've only witnessed the birth of one of her seven babies in the four years we've had her.

Dwight (white) - 13 lbs. 10oz.

Dori (black) - 12 lbs. 1 oz.

Dale was given to us by our neighbors as a gift. Dale's mother had rejected her, so we bottle-fed and took care of her. Dale is a very friendly sheep! She loves to have her belly rubbed and her neck scratched. She wiggles her tail when you scratch her just right!
