Fonteyn's lambs

Sabbath Farm Fonteyn had twin AI lambs out of Drum Jings.
The grey katmoget is a ewe and the white is a ram. I'm so glad the white is a ram! I wanted another white ram as I want to have a lot of white Shetlands. Whites are so nice.
Ewe lambs fleece
Ram lambs fleece-both are fine and crimpy!

I have one more AI ewe left to lamb and several other sheep and a goat ready to lamb/kid any day. So far I'm pretty pleased with the AI lambs they were all vigorous and nursed on their own. Seinna's were even born in the snow and did not get chilled!


  1. Ooooh, can't wait to see how they turn out! That ewe looks scrumptious!

  2. ok is that mother or daughter for sale? i like the mom's pedigree and don't have any jings if you are not keeping the ewe lamb let me know :)

  3. Sorry, I'm keeping both right now. I may sell the dam next year (or the year after!) If I do I can let you know if you want. I don't mind renting out rams so if you want to use the ram lamb that is a possibility.

  4. beautiful little lambs! I love the color of the little ewe.

  5. Lovely lambs, Laura! Fonteyn is such a good ewe that you will NOT be sorry with these lambs. They will probably rank at or near the top of your evaluations of the lamb crop in a few months.
