First Lambs of 2013 at Hubbert Farms!!

 Brandy gave us 2 ewe lambs and 1 gorgeous badgerface ram lamb on Tuesday evening. Their sire is Casper.
 The panda face ewe lamb has white spots. I am pretty sure both she and her sister will turn various shades of grey in time.
 A great start to lambing this year....we are so happy with these lambs :-) Only 7 more ewes to go!
 This is 62%Gotland ewe Gracie's first fleece. If you look closely in the pic below you can see the remaining black bits from Gracie's black birth coat. These somewhat hairy bits combed out easily.
Gracie's finished yarn is a silky 3 ply spun straight from the flicked locks. Pure spinning pleasure :-)

Oh, oh, oh!!! So exciting and how adorable ;) Our lambing should start in a few weeks - at least I hope they wait that long, because we still have to get them sheared. Congratulations!

Good luck with the lambing! That badgerface really looks gorgeous. He seems to have a good body and strong legs.
