I want to go hold him. Thanks, Anne, for the pictures and for giving my sheep a good home. Anne agreed to keep the sheep at the Hubbell Trading Post in Arizona, where they apparently fit right in. She has part of our former flock, anyway. They went to at least three different homes.
Amidala likes to be the first one each year to lamb, and she did it again this year. I miss her, and the rest of them too. Does anyone know how to say "Skywalker" in Navajo?
Correction on the color - that appears to be a reverse badgerface. Lambs often look darker at birth. This is one of my favorite sheep colors. I love the brown wool. Dala is a red-brown now, but she was actually solid black at birth, to give you an idea how the colors can change with maturation. This little guy might fade too, but I think he is beautiful as he is.
