Norris is a lamb from the last colored Cotswold ram I sold who went to a very nice farm and shepherd in MA. (Norris' mom was from here too.) That ram was the last son of Gilly, one of my favorite colored Cotswold ewes. She's now too old to breed again and I have been regretting not having any young males from her. Long story short, young Norris here became available and so I couldn't resist adding him to the flock. I hope to breed a very select number of ewes in the future and I can't wait to see lambs from this line.
He has a perfect companion in old Ian who has a stiff shoulder and is penned separately from the other rams to avoid further injury. (Not to worry, they can all see and hear each other - nobody is housed truly alone.) Anyway, I told Ian he was going to become an "Uncle".
"Excuse me? I don't think I was consulted."
It's working out just fine and they go out together after their morning crunchies to graze the little pasture attached to the barn. (The other boys are let out first and they pass through it to the larger pasture.)
"Man, this kid is wearing me out."
But when Ian gets tired and goes in to rest Norris quite often stays out a while longer to graze. He's a Cotswold, therefore a natural born good eater!
"I'm coming......just a minute....okay.....be right there............."
He's an extremely friendly and personable lamb who clearly got loved on a lot by his first shepherd.
This is the view I got the most of.
He's a sweetie!
