Meet the Lambs — Finn and Nora

Here they are, in all their fuzzy little cuteness!

Finn and Nora are twins, born right before Easter 2018.  They both are dark-fleeced with a bit of tan markings, but now the fleece has covered any lighter coloring.  In the early photos, Finn has the most tan and white on his face, Nora not so much.  Gradually, it gets harder to tell them apart.  Thankfully, the longer I’ve known them, their personalities stand out more than their fleece color.  They love to prance around at dusk and leap off of straw bales.  They are now eating hay and grass as they are slowly weaning off.  Mum likes to keep tabs on them to make sure they are behaving.  Penny is like the fun aunt they hang out with, but sometimes leads them in mischief.  Finn likes to make little hmmm noises like he’s humming.  Nora is quiet like Freya.  It has been such a joy watching them grow and soon they will be six months old.

  1. Oh, thanks so much! I was wondering when we’d have pictures. This is the first time I’ve seen them. If they were down by Hadley before, I never went out to see them; and now they’re up in the pasture, right? It’ll be nice when I can walk again, so I can get around all your property!

    Thanks, again!

  2. Hi Katherine, you’ve done it again–another great update! It’s so fun to see the growth and new experiences of the lambs. They have such sweet faces that it’s hard to look away. Their eyes just draw you into them. It’s hard to believe they have gotten so big already and I can’t wait to see them in person. The photos you’ve taken are amazing and really draw you into their reality. And the photos also show your caring nature towards the lambs and how well they have responded to you. You really have a talent for photography.

    One comment I have to make though is that Auntie Penny should be named Auntie Lin based on your description of her. Let’s face the fact that it describes me!!!😉

    I’m so glad you are writing this blog so we all get to share in this wonderful experience with you.

    Love, Auntie Lin
