Jeryls gave birth to twins again this year. This is her third set of twins on our farm. Her first babies,Daenarys and her brother, were both white. Last year we welcomed the identical black rams, Jarl and Jorsin.
This year, she had a ram, J4 (aka Robbie Jr who looks exactly like his dad Robillard) and a ewe, (her mini-me), Maris. They were born nearly two weeks before Daenarys gave birth. The babies are so much fun to watch. They chase each other all around the pasture and climb and sit/stand on Jeryls and the other ewes.
The moms and babies were temporarily brought into the barn for check ups. So, I finally got an opportunity to see the babies up close. D1 (for now) is such a cute and curious little ram. He is the first spotted baby born on the farm which makes him extra special. Daenerys is a wonderfully protective and attentive mom, just like her mom Jerlys.
Daenarys wanted nothing to do with sharing D1, her spotted ram, with me. She is such an attentive and doting mom. Don’t you love his white socks on his rear legs? His daddy, Acaelas has those exact same socks!
This is Jerlys’ third set of twins. She is more relaxed with this set but still very protective and not too interesting in letting me get close to Maris, her ewe and J4, her little brown ram. We’ve been calling him Robbie Jr because he looks and acts so much like his dad, Robillard.
I will try to get better pictures and soon but wanted to share these babies asap! 🙂
