xD I will have to get some of the girls once I go back outside! (stuck inside babysitting! The horror!) The girls are soo precious but are definitally night and day from each other. I worried that having two of the same gender and same color would be difficult as I wouldnt be able to tell them apart but there are soo many differences in them its very clear which lamb is which.


This is full sibling to the newborn twins. 4th place overall in his last livestock show. Barely 11 months old and the biggest BY FAR. 170 lbs. 4th place and he wasnt pushing against his owner because of the cold isnt bad at all for my first showlamb right?!


In the show ring. You can se how pretty an outline this cross brings. Also brings a VERY powerful lamb. Especially if you can get them to push instead of rearing on you instead

^^I've been judged by that judge before on my goats!! He was all over the place in every class and I hated it. :/ I hate when they're hypocrites and don't stick to one standard.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

My goodness! I completely agree! This judge didnt like anything but their weight. He literally placed them by how CLOSE they were to 140 lbs. Did the same thing to the mother of the twins and Henry. Except she was a tiny lamb and was 109 and placed LAST even though she isnt by any means an ugly lamb (which some of the others were for sure! And im not being biased. A few other people who know lambs told me so xD)

He's not even a goat/lamb/cow judge. His expertise is swine. So if your not showing swine its a crapshoot. Didnt even place my friends santa gertrudis heifer even though she won reserve grand gert heifer in Fort Worth this year. He liked one specific type of cow and everything else came in under them. Sometimes judges just kill me!

I had the biggest goat at show and got 3rd to last. :/ That goat was a freaking power house. Except he was red. A lot of the old fashioned people don't like red goats, but they're becoming a lot more common now. I took a different red goat to The Youth Expo in Harris County and got 3rd in class, 2nd reserve in auction. I so would have placed higher if the boy in front of me actually drove his goat. It sat there like jello! The second he got picked, I went up and got picked just like that. Grrrr some people.

The first pic is the one lamb I showed while I was in FFA. A cute, but stupid, ewe lamb named Sookie. This was at a Katy Prospect show, she ended up getting second in class. At my show, I got second in class and 4th in auction because she was light boned. Sold for 1200 at auction(year of the drought) and the owner of our feed store ended up buying her for breeding stock. Second pic is of the red goat I took to Harris County, where that judge placed him so low. He ended up getting second in his class at the Katy show even though he didn't have much condition. His shoulders/loin were so broad you could barely fit your hand around them.

I think your animals look nice! I've never shown a goat. I've always been horses, sheep, and rabbits. Though im out of the rabbits now and because im too old to show lambs (outside of open shows but I have to have a registered lamb to show open which I don't) I always showed ewes and once I was too old I couldnt get rid of my girls. So I bought a ram and became a breeder!! Same thrill of my lambs winning without having to pay for feed and work with them XD I get them during the cute tiny stages where mom feeds them and I get to pla with them. Once theyre weaned (and not as cute though still kind of cute) I sell them as show prospects. I love it!!

My girls this morning. The one on the left is the first born. Right is second.

Of course you will be able to tell them apart - like us each sheep is unique - expression, facial characteristics etc etc, I can tell each of our sheep apart from a distance just by the way they are behaving
Most people can't tell the difference between sheep when you are not familiar with them and certainly it can be hard - this is Moulamb rouge

And her daughter Myrtle who is getting to look more and more like her!

But I can still tell them apart...Myrtle HAS a tail LOL

Very true merlot! I can tell ally my adulties apart for sure! Lamblet and Scotch are both blues but lamblet is a much better bred lamb and you can see it in her build. She's a tad bit shorter but she's also two years younger and barely one year old. Jack and dizzy are both whites but Jack is more of a tb style long and lanky while Dizzy is a stocky little QH type girl. Also theres the whole.. he's 250 lbs while she's 150 at best haha. I just assumed being so close in age, breeding, gender and overall not knowing them yet I thought they would be a lot closer than they really are physically.

Their builds, faces, colors, and personalities are just night and day. Even in the picture of them laying down I can see the difference in them. Theyre my first twins so I didnt expect it!
