Twin lambs were just born on our family farm! They’re pretty adorable.
We started with three pregnant sheep about 15 months ago. We have now grown to nine sheep including 2-3 pregnant sheep.
These are Katahdin sheep, a type of hair sheep. We didn’t want to subject wool sheep to Louisiana summers. Can you imagine? (Actually, I think Louisiana’s only native sheep, the Gulf Coast Native breed, is a wool sheep)
We try to hold the lambs as much as possible so they aren’t so “sheepish” around us. Here are some pictures of the newborn lambs with the family:
And maybe the cutest picture my wife has ever taken … baby Elizabeth and baby lamb:
But, there’s a problem. We don’t know what to name the baby lambs, so we thought we would ask you.
I’ve made the survey below with some possibilities. There’s AbraRAM & Sarah, because Abraham saved his wife by calling her his sister. That one’s my favorite. My wife’s favorite is Moses & Mirium, which is a pretty sweet combination. This also brings in Passover “Lamb” connotations.
But feel free to add some write-in candidates. Hopefully, I added that option correctly. Thanks for your help!
Abraham (“AbraRAM”) & Sarah … because Abraham tricked the king by calling his wife his sister
Benedict & Scholastica … twin Saints
Moses & Mirium … Moses and his ever-watchful sister
Cosmas and Damian (“Dammy/Lamb-y”) … twin Saint physicians
