Utah (aka: Ewe-Tahrapter) has become the first ewe to lamb this season. She brought her large ewe lamb to the feeding station this morning. Utah once upon a time was a people loving little sheep, but nowadays she is grown up, cautious and suspicious. When she joined the flock, she gave up her pet lamb ways. Now she's a mature, serious ewe, and a devoted momma. She wouldn't even bring the lamb close to me for inspection.
So I got the see the new lamb from a distance, and only know that it's a little girl because she took a pee. Rather than force the issue, I'll allow Utah to be the protective mother. I'll get a chance to closely inspect the little lambakin later.
