The new mama didn't want to take her babies out of the barn this morning. She's happy enough to share her babies with the rest of the flock, as long as they stay in the barn.  When everyone else strolled out the gate, she stayed behind.  Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Terri's Pal asked me to post more photos of my lambs.  Because the new lambs are inside the barn, I can't get good shots of them without a flash (and then they have blue eyes!)

Here they are with the Malibu Twins. Note the size difference.

I named them the Malibu Twins because the ewe lamb has a blond head.  I call them Malibu Ken & Barbie. (born Jan 29)

Here is the lamb that was born on Jan 2.  He's a little hulkster now.

The Jan 2 lamb with the Dec 25 lamb.  Compare them to the lambs born yesterday. 


Here are Roanie's boys - Ricearoni & Macaroni

They've grown a bit, haven't they?

We've got lambs stretched from Oct 25 birthdates to March 28 birthdates. Thus far, the singles born later have caught up with the twins born in October.  Next year I'm hoping to plan better so that everyone is born within the same month.  We're weaning in groups and so I have to listen to screaming babies from now til June!

They are so cute! Lambs grow up amazingly fast! I'm only used to kittens and pups growing so the lambs seem extra fast to me ... only 2-3 months old and they are huge. Please keep showing us lamb pictures. Your lamb photos remind me of seeing Little Bo Peep and her lamb at a sheep shearing demo:

The twins are so cute I can't stand it. I'm on cuteness overload! Also love the malibu names. What kind of sheep are they? Such pretty colors.

In the third picture I was trying to figure out where the other set of lambs were.... I can't believe how fast those lambs grow!

Jane, the sheep are Dorpers. They're a kind of hair sheep that sheds. The Malibu Twins are a product of a full-blooded Dorper mother bred to a registered White Dorper.

Wait! I lied! The sire of the Malibu Twins is the "grandson" of the White Dorper. Next year the lambs will be sons of the White Dorper (because I just bought him!)

How old are lambs when they are weaned?
Posted by Janie on 04/01/2011 - 09:22 AM
We generally wean about 3-4 months old. They get big fast!
