Here are the girls.
"Inky," my grade black ewe (3 June 1989 -- 2 August 2003), with her 1995 twin ewe lambs and a bunch of freeloaders -- and here she is right after being shorn

"Delilah," (3/6/93 to 3/22/02) a Scottish Blackface ewe and her 1995
grade ram lamb twins
Here's Delilah's replacement, "Emma" (11 May 2002 to 9 June 2008)
And here she is hanging out with Inky
Two shots of "Dodge," the Suffolk-type ram I bred the girls to in 2002.
Inky's replacement was "Cordelia" (2/14/04 to 11/25/07), a Black Corriedale
Here she is napping and thinking about having a scratch
"Emma," with her '06 twin ewe lambs, fathered by a Cotswold ram
Here's Cordy with her '06 twin lambs "Tall Boy" and "Blackie" (same father as Emma's lambs) at one hour and several months later -- some kids never grow up!
Cordy and Emma meeting "Bowler," the Cotswold ram they're being bred to for their '07 lambs
Cordelia's 07 triplets just after their birth, with Emma looking on
Emma and Cordy's replacements, my new Icelandic sheep -- "Blue" (born April 2004) and her daughter "Lucinda" (born April 10, 2008)
Shearing day for Blue and Lucinda
