It's a boy.

Oh, well. We love him anyway...

It was hard to get a good picture. Goldie is still a bit skittish around people, and I didn't want to upset her by getting too close. So I stayed outside the fence, stalking around with my camera and moving slowly.
Problem one was trying to take a picture of a black lamb who's lying in the shade.


Then, there was Uncle Merlin, who loves it when the paparazzi appear. Cameras were made for Merlin.
Wait patiently, line up the shot, and...

and...


But patience finally pays off. Merlin went over to see if anything new had appeared in the food dish since the last time he'd looked, little Lambie came out of the shade, and voila!

He's at the cute wobbly stage. All legs and no coordination.
Though he's getting pretty good at that eating thing.

Snacktime over, he set off to explore, with Mama trailing close behind.

He was very puzzled by this pallet. (Later on, while we were watching him through the window, he finally managed to jump up on it. The concept of "slippery" came as a big surprise.)

No name yet. Anything cute enough to fit him now would sound awfully undignified when he's a ram...

Sorry - I know you were hoping for a girl (uhm, why? Breeding stock?)

Then you must name him Sue.

Hello, I'm Johnny Cash.

Awwww. Congratulations! A boy, with or without, is still a good fiber creature.

Merlin The Camera Hog cracks me up. Baby Lambikins is too cute!

Oh, so he IS going to be a ram? I had done the math and assumed you were planning a lamb dinner for Thanksgiving.

Such a cutie, but it's a shame he's a stinkin' boy. /sigh

He's adorable. I'd call him Charlie... just 'cause.
