The folks who bought Anna also took a young black ram and they wish to have little Anna's of their own. Anna was exposed to the ram, Tuck, this year, and is likely bred. She does have a bit of a round belly on the underside, but it is early to tell. She may not be due until June at the latest, depending on when the ram visited her.She did not want to be bred though, and ran away from him every time I observed them together.
There will be a new crop of little Babydoll lambs born in a few month. Rosy is already very big. She was a twin and her sire was a twin, so there is a good chance she could be carrying twin Babydolls. I am looking to trade my mature rams, Friar and Tuck, for two new boys that are unrelated so they new daughters can also be bred in the following years.
The folks that have Anna are a young couple without children and I am sure Anna and the black ram will be well loved.I will miss her, most certainly. She would always return my call with her baaa. Sheep remember their mothers for their entire lifetimes if they are allowed to live in family groups. Good bye my sweet Anna. I love you and miss you already! Thank you for our two years of joy.
