As you can see by the the photos, we've adopted two new two-week-old Shetland Sheep lambs. But...they don't have names yet. We'd like you to help us come up with names for the new additions. One lamb is a boy and one is a girl. Send us an email and give us some ideas. Click on the "Send Us an Email" link on our Contact Us page. Put "Baby Names" in the subject line.

The Shetland sheep breed, like the ponies and the sheep dogs from the same area are small. They won't get much larger than slightly more than half the stature of a full-size sheep. They range in color from all black to cream with several multi-color "designs." Sometimes their color changes as they get older. One of our new babies is all black and one is black with light-colored swirls. They will still be bottle fed for the next few weeks.

This is the male.

Barbara has a little (hungry) lamb.

The two lambs are growing as fast as our corn. Their names are Amos and Hattie. They look forward to meeting you when you visit the farm this fall.
