More Lambs and Counting

My first wave of BFL cross Shetland lambs have arrived and are outside now with their moms. My ewe's eye has cleared up nicely with treatment and they are growing like weeds. The one fawn katmoget marked ram lamb is extremely friendly and spends a good deal of time getting petted and trying to jump on my lap. I don't know why some animals are so friendly from birth, but he always has been and because of this several other of the lambs are a little less skittish. He has a gorgeous fleece and because he is a ram I don't normally encourage this type of behaviour, but he will be wethered when older and go to a pet home or stay here. Enjoy the pics.
