Lilac Lucy With Two Hearts

This is my yearling ram, Tonkin. He is the father of a precious new lamb I know I will be keeping...
...little Lucy Two- Hearts ! Look at Lucy peeking around her mother, Tilda. This past Saturday we returned home from a wedding of two young friends, Lucy & Trevor ,to discover my ewe Tilda had her first lamb. What a precious little lilac ( Jacob sheep more commonly have black spots) lamb, and her spots seemed to have been formed by God knowing she would be born on their wedding day. I had to name her Lucy.
This is her right side...
...and on her left side, look ! Two heart shaped spots. They also resemble newborn baby footprints. Hmmm. Either way, this made a happy event even more happy for me. A lovely wedding of two special people and a lovely lilac lamb with two heart spots.
Tilda and Lucy Two-Hearts, mother & daughter. If you are interested in what I do with the wool fleece of my Jacob Sheep, you might enjoy this post , Recipe For Yarn*.

Aw, little Lucy is so sweet. I love the hearts in her wool. How wonderful she was born on the day of the wedding too.

Oh, Kathy~ this is so sweet!! Miss Lucy would definitely have a place in my heart, too. Will she keep the hearts or do the markings change as she gets older?

Oh my goodness Kathy that is the cutest thing in the world. Are you ever frightened of the horns? I understand sheep are pretty tame, and certainly the ones in the fields on the footpaths near my home in England scatter when I walk past, but they don't have horns.

They don't look real!!! They look like stuffed animals.... they are God's masterpieces.
So sweet!!! Makes me want to cuddle with that sweet baby.
Hope you're having a good weekend!!

Adorable. I love the names you choose for all your pets, Hawk and Blizzard and Mis Marple and Tilda and Lucy Two Hearts, how blessed you are to have a life submerged in Nature and what really matters. And my, how the grandchildren have grown.
