Found this little white ewe born today as I began my morning chores. She is quite tiny, but looks great. Mom is Black Pearl and sire is Big Don. She has very dark eyes, and like most of the white lambs born this year, color in her hoofs and maybe a little shading on her legs. Too soon to tell but that's my guess. I was not expecting Black Pearl to lamb now, she didn't look it but to tell you the truth, I've been watching some other ewes more closely waiting for them. So this was a surprise today. But a wonderful surprise!
I am a breeder of Polish Tatra Sheepdogs, a rare breed. I keep a flock of registered Shetland sheep. In 2008 we added laying hens to the farm. 2009 brought the first attempt at a garden and it's successful so far!
