Derby. Sadly Derby passed away this winter from natural causes. He was truly the gentlest ram I've ever seen, and he shed his wool each Spring. He would stand quietly for me while I pulled handful after handful from his back and belly, the most beautiful chocolate brown wool. I wonder if Junior here will be the same.
Now that Spring has sprung, so to speak, I'm anxiously trotting out to the barn several times a day to check our other ewe, another first-timer. More lamby photos to come!
