Its Lambing time at Smith Farms

Brei Holmes started off this lambing season by having two stunning ram lambs on Tuesday.

These two are quite lovely and I am excited to see if they will have the same stunning, crimpy fleece their father has.

Today I was surprised when I found Shillelagh with a little lamb by her side. I thought for sure she was a week or two off yet as she wasn't very big at all.

This was Shillelagh when she was born 3/17/2011

This is Shillelagh today -with her lamb

She has always been the kids favorite and you can see why- she is extremely laid back and friendly..she loves the kids.
Somewhere through the course of the year she lost all her lovely black!!

Shillelagh's Ram lamb - I would love for him to stay black- he is gorgeous!

So the count today is 3 lambs - 3 boys! Only 2 girls to go.



  1. How exciting! We're running 15 boys and only 3 girls too--apparently this is a year for rams! :)

  2. Congratulations! I came over from the FarmGirl Hop. I raise Shetlands also but am still waiting. Aren't those tame mothers the best?
