The New Girls

These are the ewe lambs that are still here after selling everyone (almost) that I intend to. (And there were 81 lambs this year.) I’m very pleased with this group and proud that my breeding program has led to this selection.18001-JanieMeridian Janie (bide a wee Buster x Meridian Jane)18021-Maybelle-headMeridian Maybelle (bide a wee Buster x Meridian Mae) This ewe was going to be on my sale list but she had an unexpected tryst with Cayenne and may be pregnant.18041-RuthieMeridian Ruthie (Meridian Cayenne x Meridian Ruth), who just broke her horn and is somewhat bloody on one side. This is another ewe who may be pregnant after the aforementioned incident.18054-Zora-headMeridian Zora (Meridian Cayenne x Meridian Betty)18054-ZoraZora is a pretty little lilac ewe who was chosen from Day 1 for her cute markings, although “cuteness” isn’t listed under the JSBA Breed Standard selection criteria.18056-QuartzMeridian Quartz (bide a wee Buster x Meridian Jade). Quartz was chosen because, besides being a nice looking ewe, her mom is everyone’s favorite pet sheep and…18056-Quartz-hd …I want to see how her 6 horns grow out.18080-2Meridian ??? I haven’t named this lamb yet but she certainly deserved a good one. (Meridian Serrano x Unzicker Shenandoah)18454-Marion-headbide a wee Marion (Ruby Peak Cinnamon x Meridian Maven), who didn’t go home to Oregon after the AGM we hosted in August.18078 JannaMeridian Janna (bide a wee Buster x Meridian Janis). Janna is a big tall ewe lamb and is out with the breeding group, possibly to be bred by Meridian Axle.18002 SopranoMeridian Soprano (bide a wee Buster x Meridian Sonata) has definitely been bred by Axle.

It looks as though I am missing photos of one ewe and that is Meridian Haldana, who is one of the lambs that went to the state fair. Everyone else is accounted for here.

  1. For the lamb which needs a name, how about another Chile pepper? Cayenne is an obvious choice, but it is taken. How about Jalapeño, Bell, Ancho, or Tabasco?

    • I think that I want it to be something that relates to Shenandoah because of the dam and then I remember who she is out of. However, Bell(e) could work. I’ll keep thinking about it.
