the lamb twins were born in august to parsley, a ewe who also birthed twins in the spring at the 'ripe' age of 11.
so they were a 'whoops' and their mama didn't have enough milk.
so the shepherdess bottle-raised them and looked for a home and found me.
they are jacob sheep, known for their spots and their horns.
little basil has four horns and oregano, his brother, has two.
i love their names but i've taken to calling them lovey..
and pokey... nicknames are good too.
they are crazy about their bottles.
and settling in really well.
they are very special.
for anyone who's doing instagram, mine has turned into instalamb.
