Which name did I choose? Euphemism. Barry suggested this one and both hubby and I like it. We'll give her the nickname Missy.
Missy is doing great. She has learned my pathetic imitation of a sheep mama.... Baaaaa. Baaaaaa. She comes running for a bottle. She's one greedy eater, which is a good trait for a lamb to have. She lives in my front field away from the flock for now. Once she is a few weeks older and eating grasses and herbs, I'll introduce her back to the flock. But she will be on the bottle for another month past that point. Past experience has shown me that Missy will come to me for her bottle twice a day (right now she gets bottle fed 3-4 times a day).
Little Missy is one cute lamb. She's starting to do those lamb hops and boings, starting to investigate things. Yesterday she ran a big circle around me as fast as she could, then realized she was lost. Letting out a yell of "Ma, I'm lost!", she made a straight line right to me when I answered with my mommy-baa.
By the way, Missy is a hair sheep. She won't be growing a long wool coat. As a result there is no reason to dock her tail. So she'll be keeping her beautiful little white flag of a tail.
