Name the Lambs Contest Winner!

I am pleased to announce a winner to our Name the Lambs contest. Mike and I narrowed down the list of potential name themes to our five favorites: types of tea, candy, National Parks, Disney characters and Shakespearean names. We then let our Sheep Shares CSA 2014 members cast their votes to decide this year’s theme.

The choice by a clear margin was to use the Shakespearean theme for naming this year’s lambs and credit goes to Anne who was the first to suggest this theme on March 20 at 1:06 pm. Thank you, Anne, and to everyone who added to the great list of suggestions.

The above photo is Cobweb, having breakfast at 5 a.m. today. He and his sister Peaseblossom were born to Cormo ewe Tupelo last Tuesday.

The lamb count is at 10 as of 4:30 this morning. It’s been a tiring week full of drama – I will fill you in on the details in a separate post. But everyone in the barn is doing well and I’m trying to hold it all together on little sleep.

Congrats to Anne. and again, thank you, everyone.
