The Lambs
On January 25, 2018, Cotton Candy gave birth to beautiful 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 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, 2018 Season
Our Second, 2019 Season
The Present, 2020 Season
On September 19, 2019, Lola gave birth to a ewe-lamb.
On December 9, 2019, Fluffy, one of the two new ewes we acquired this year, gave birth to a ewe-lamb. Taking the name from the mother, the little one is called “Fluffita.”
On December 25, 2019, Bella gave birth to twins, one black and the other white. Both are ewes.
On January 9, 2020, Comet- Angel gave birth to a ewe-lamb. You can see Copper, the macho father, on the left.
On January 12, 2020, Cotton Candy, another one of our original five churros, gave us a third year of twins, both rams.
On January 25, 2020, Daisy, our non-Churro ewe, gave birth to another season of twins, a black ram and white ewe.
On January 8, 2020, Shadow gave birth to a ewe.
On August 3, 2020, Bella, one of our first churro ewes and experienced breeder, gave us a borreguito, her second birthing in one year.
On February 10, 2019 Comet-Angel gave birth to a male (no picture here).
As for the rest of the Navajo Churros, on December 27, 2018 Lola gave birth to  a male (no picture here).
On November 27, 2018, one of our non-Churro sheep gave birth to two fluffy black lambs, seen to the left above. With their wool 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.
Below you will see our adult sheep ewes, and their many lambs. While the little ones come and go, the adults are named, cared for, and loved as an extension of our parish family. Our original Navajo Churro ewes are Bella, Comet, Cotton Candy, and Lola; later on we acquired two more, Shadow and Fluffy. There is one more ewe, who, though not being a churro is so gentle in her manner and faithful in breeding that we have kept her with us, Daisy. These seven have given us many lambs and much joy over the years.
On August 8, 2020, Fluffy (not to be confused with the commedian of the same name), gave us a borreguito.
On August 13, 2020, Daisy gave us twins, one with great variation in its fleece.
