Quiche's Lambs 2011

Majun (male) and Misun (female)

Quiche and Misun

Quiche had twin lambs, a boy and a girl, on Feb. 16, 2011. This is her second year in a row of having the first lamb of the year. It's also the second year in a row of her getting unintentionally bred.

Last year it was a broken fence issue. This year it was a quick-maturing ram lamb that wasn't moved out in time. I think it was probably Takgu, who was the biggest and handsomest of the White Dorper cross ram lambs. I used him to breed to some of my ram Harry's offspring, but Takgu died in the bad weather. That happens sometimes when a ram lamb is used for breeding which is why I usually don't do it.

The female lamb is named Misun and the male is named Majun. Both are Korean names. I took them in the house for the past two days to nap for an hour in my lap so they will bond to me as well as to their mamma. So far Majun is friendlier and Misun is fussier.
