    Haha,there are a few that love to do just that,and suck on your chin. :)

    It depends on the breed as to how many babies;some breeds only have singles,while other can have up to five or even seven! Ours have mainly twins,with a few sets of triplets and the occasional quadruplets . Our young ewes usually will just have one their first year.

    Beautiful lambs - such a shame they have to be tagged -I HATE ear tags, fortunately as none of ours will ever go to the works we don't tag at all.
    Some lovely photographs there

    Do the black lambs stay black ? The ones in this area will turn white / suffolk.
    My sheep are an ewe she is white and is a wool sheep .. now I cannot remember her breed sr moment.. and the male is nuetered a suffolk , he has ear tags from being in the fair , one of these days we will need to cut them off.

    It varies;sometimes they will stay black (although the wool tips often turn brown from the sun),sometimes they'll fade to grey,and others will completely shed the black baby wool/hair with the new wool coming in white. Their legs/faces will stay black though.
