The CVMs – See How They’ve Grown!

Exciting news – Chris Spitzer has sent a new batch of photos of the CVM/Romeldale lambs. Good heavens, I was astonished to see how much they have filled out. I feel bad for Chris's daughter, Randi, who did some heavy lifting so we can admire these lambs. What fun (for us, that is)!

Note: You can click on the photos to make larger, except for the first one – I spaced out and forgot to super-size it, sorry).

Tumbleweed (formerly ram lamb #1):

Java (ewe lamb #2):

And Java again, in profile, so you can see her lovely fleece and round tummy:

Dune (ewe lamb #3). I love her color; her name is so appropriate:

W926-ewe-Dune -crop-2

And here are the little girls we are naming this week.

Ewe lamb #4:

And ewe lamb #5, who is the youngest in the group (I think) and seems a little smaller than the others:

Thank you Chris for finding time to take these photos. I realize you must be up to your eyeballs in work at this time of year. Rounding up seven lambs for portraits is no small task and I appreciate your sharing so we can see how the lambs are coming along. Your daughter, Randi, is a good sport!
