I don't know. What do you think it is?
The Cotswold babies are about a week apart in age, but the little white ram was around 10 pounds at birth and is growing rapidly, while the baby girl was smaller and more delicate, maybe pushing just seven pounds. What a difference a week can make in the lambs! The little fellow is curious and aware and today went to meet the new girl. He tried to engage in her some frolic and play, but being just a day old, it was a bit much for her. It was so cute to watch the two of them interact and imagine their conversations, if they did indeed have any at all. The llama crias are a month apart, and the small, younger one, being male, is more curious, less shy and very playful. The two babies run, run, run just because they can. What a delight spring time is and how grateful I am to be part of the animals' lives. Bless you mammas and babies, and oh yeah, the daddies too! Thank you Creator for the wonder of it all.
And this is Jeanette, the girl cria. she is such a perfect little thing with perfect markings and such soft fiber. What a doll. The lambs and crias are in the maternity pen sharing the protection of being on the inner side of the farm yard where the dogs can easily jump the fence to look after them if need be. One more lamb is due any time now and then the next crew won't start until June. Babies are so wonderful, aren't they?
