Our two Suffolks, Molly and Daisy, have two new friends! Downy, a Southdown wether lamb, and Milo, a Hampshire/Suffolk cross (also a wether lamb), have arrived at Sun and Wind Farm. They wear coats (since they’ve been recently sheared) and follow Molly and Daisy around with adoring eyes.
Although we have it on good authority that both lambs won ribbons at the north Texas FFA shows, we can tell you that Downy’s real forte is eating; he can out-eat any other lamb his size. Note to visitors: be careful hand-feeding Downy unless you want a 100 pound lamb in your lap licking your face and begging for just one more treat. (Milo is much more sedate although he does enjoy a Fig Newton now and again).
