Our little black ewe, Charlotte
Typical of most young males of any species, Leroy didn’t seem to bother with much foreplay. He did pursue her, following her everywhere, sniffing her with desire. He would get a deep whiff of whatever reproductive scent she was emitting and lustily curl his upper lip, grazing his nostrils. At the same time, he would lift his head to the sky as if to send his thanks to the heavens. He was a horny ram, lamb or not. And yes, he was happier still when his quest for coitus was realized.
A typical Shetland ewe has a gestation period of 146 days. If my math is correct and if fertilization was successful, Charlotte
As it stands now, Leroy has shown no interest in our other two ewes. I have always suspected Cookie to be a lesbian plus she has really let herself go. I guess we’ll have to slip a six-pack out to the boy to get him interested in her. Young Carmela is still too immature to mate but will probably be there in two months time. As it stands now, she is very pretty jailbait.
All in all, we are very excited to have lambs on the way. We have seen puppies and kittens being born but no livestock, at least in person. A new baby, regardless of species, is such a miracle to behold. I can’t wait until spring!
