Guess the Next Lambs

Da da da da da da daa. Dut, da da da da da da…While I’m typing this I’m hearing in my head  a well-known Game Show tune that goes with it. However, this game won’t be quite like that one.

I have a list of due dates based on observed breeding dates. I photographed most of the top contenders. My list shows the following ewes for February 25.13077 MaeMae from the front.13077 Mae (1)Mae from the rear.921 ShelbyShelby from the side.921 Shelby (1)Shelby from the rear.14027 Esmerelda (1)Esmerelda, front.14027 EsmereldaEsmerelda, rear.999 AthenaAthena from the front.999 Athena rearAthena from the rear.13007 Marilyn (1)Marilyn is due 2/26. 13007 MarilynHere she is from the rear. She was shorn in November. I sure like the recently shorn views better for this.12086 NoelNoel is due 2/27.821 FranFran is due 2/28.821 Fran (1)Fran from the rear.952 SpringSpring isn’t due until March 5 but she always looks so big I thought I’d just give you a view.12071 DelightWho is this? Trick question. That is Delight who is nursing twins.911 Dazzle and lambAnd here is Dazzle with her single. You can sure see the difference in body condition of ewes that are nursing month old lambs.

There a few other ewes on the list for the first couple of days, but I didn’t get photos of them. Maybe if I didn’t pick them out of the bunch for photos then they really aren’t ready. In any case we’ll just go with the sheep that are shown here for the prize. Yes, there will be a prize. I’m thinking about that right now. Something easy to mail. How about a pair of socks (sorry, only medium left) or a t-shirt. Your choice.

You can guess here in the comments or on Facebook. Share this post with your friends. Whoever is the first to name the first of these ewes to lamb is the winner. We should know in a few days.

Dut, da da da, da da da…

Update: I didn’t think this through very well. The first person with the right sheep will still get the prize, but to add incentive to continue voting I’ll put all the names of all the people who choose that sheep in a random drawing for something else.

  1. Athena, then esmerelda. They look huge but obviously healthy, wouldn’t it be great if they all delivered during daytime hours only. One could only wish.
