Easter Lamb

When most folks talk about Easter lamb they mean something else, but this is the sort we had yesterday.

It was born somewhere around noon on Easter Sunday entirely without assistance of problems. It weighted 8 lbs 4 oz and got tagged as #27.

I should mention for my northern friends that the breeds of sheep that do best here in the Deep South tend to be smaller than those you have up north. A mature ewe often weights as little as 100 lbs.

By the way, we had tacos for Easter dinner.
