Well, he's been on the ground for a week now, so I thought I'd post some new photos. Having his mom all to himself is making him grow like a weed.

Well, Sunday morning (Dec. 6th) at 7:30 I, in my bathrobe, making coffee, looked out the kitchen window only to see some little black "thing" scurry around the hay feeder...Than, my brain kicks in...OMG, that is a lamb...

I "threw" cloths on, slip on shoes, and no jacket, flew out of the door to the sheep yard, ran around the feeder, grab the lamb, and headed to the barn. (It was 23 degrees that am)
All of the ewes were in hot pursuit. I put junior in the stall, than went to retrieve Vanity, who had retreated back to the feeder to look for her baby. A simple call got her turned around, and headed to the gate to the stall, had to fight off the Texel Ewe to get Vanity through the gate, but I won, (hard to push a Texel around...).
Here are a few photo opps of the babe...

He is doing great and eating well...

Yes, he is coated...it's colder than hell out.
He hasn't even used the heat lamp, but I still have it on.Obviously, I am colder in the barn than he is.

This is a Black ram lamb by "Mars", out of "Vanity".
