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.
