Here is Oma's first lamb and my first lamb of 2008! Born March 28th her name will be Desert Peach Zephyr (Zephie) weighing in at a big 5 lbs and born during one of our famous Washoe Zephyrs. She had a brother (Washoe) but he died the day after he was born. Still looking into that to see what could have caused his death. This is also Newton's (dad's) first lamb to be born. I wanted some genetics with spots and it looks like it worked! Oma is not into letting me get near for a close up so I settled for an action shot!
I live out side Reno Nv on 20 acres with my husband 3 dogs 6 cats and my flock of Shetland Sheep. We have a Ma-Pa landscape business I'm the bookkeeper secretary and girl Friday. The best part of the job is that the office is at home. This gives me the opportunity to raise the sheep, farm the land. ;o) and fiber arts but not as much as I'd like.
