The Lambs
On January 25, 2018, Cotton Candy gave birth to beautiful snow-white twins. They began content simply alternating between feeding from their mom and lounging in the sun, but were soon prancing around the property. One is male and the other a female.
On February 3, 2018, speckled-nose Lola gave birth to a macho borreguito with matching ears. We separate the two for a few days to give the lamb easy access to his mother’s  colostrum-rich milk and to help him learn to identify her in a bustling herd. Nonetheless they were both happy to get out and join the rest of the flock.
On February 8, 2018, Comet-Angel, one of our four Navajo Churro ewes, gave birth  to an hembra borreguita, that is, a female. So 2018 left us with a total of five new  Navajo Churro lambs. A little arithmetic reveals they must have all been conceived in  Silver City before we acquired them in November of 2017 since gestation for sheep is  about five months.
On January 12, 2018, Bella gave birth to our first Navajo Churro lamb. We had expected the new babies in April, but were blessed to receive an early surprise! The mother has shown herself proud, protective, and hungry. The lamb is a male, a macho borreguito. Since the white fleece on his head resembles a widow’s peak (in Spanish, pico de viuda), we just call him “Pico.” 
On November 27, 2018, one of our non-Churro sheep gave birth to two fluffy black lambs, seen to the left above. With their furry coats and snuggling next to their mother they will stay plenty warm during the winter months. On December 12, 2018, another sheep-ewe, “Blackie,” also gave birth to twins, shown above to the right.
On January 8, 2019 Bella gave birth to a cute little female Navajo Churro lamb, white with a chocolate stripe across her back.
On January 4, 2019 Cotton Candy gave birth to twins, a male and female.
Our First, 2017-2018 Season
Our Second, 2018-2019 Season
As for the rest of the Navajo Churros, on December 27, 2018 Lola gave birth to  a male. On February 10, 2019 Comet-Angel gave birth to a male.
The New 2019-2020 Season
On September 19, 2019, Lola gave birth to a ewe-lamb. Recall that last season the first birth did not arrive until November. Now we learn that the sheep-mating season, at least over here, can begin as soon as mid-April and extend through early September. Parishioners are already stopping by to see them.
