What a beauty, or is that handsome? young whipper snapper. Well on your way to a full sheep flock. I would like to get on the list for an opening in y our co-op.

Those sheep are so beautiful. I want that wool! When will you shear them? And can Knox even get to those faucets? I'm sure all that wool doesn't stop him. He is looking very well fed and healthy. Good job, Jenna.

Seeing your beautiful sheep makes me miss having sheep. Can't wait till I have some of my own again. ;)

Like Kris said, how in the heck does he find the "faucets" with all that wool? He is adorable and momma looks very proud.

Aww, look at that cute little lamb butt!

Glad all has gone well so far.

It's not too late/early to crutch all the ewes. It doesn't have to be a top notch job - the wool you loose is dirty and not worth saving. But the lambs you save will be.

He's darling. My husband watched Knox's first video with me, and said, you keep talking about this young author/farmer, show me more! Yet another fan in suburbia. Hope you get more sleep soon.

I don't know what decided you on this breed but I love it. What a picture.

I am really happy for you!

oh he is the dearest thing ever! So white and clean! You have ground! I guess that means melting, havent been many pics of the homestead lately so wasnt sure of the weather status. How does the poor baby find the milk under all that fleece? Dont you just want to sit outside with him all day and cuddle him?! More pics please!

Knox will be a wether, being too close in blood to stay here and breed...

I have another ram lamb lined up to join the farm for breeding!

He seems to have no problem eating at all! underneath the side flair, the udders are really pronounced!

Bundles of fleecy fluffiness wrapped up in something that goes Baaaa....

Too cute!

Beautiful lamb!
Wanted to let you know that my banjo arrived yesterday and was waiting on my porch when I got home from work. It seems to be a well made little banjo. Tuned it up real quick ( I'm a guitar player, so that was not foreign to me) and played with it about 15 min. Great sound! Unfortunately, I had a meeting to go to or I would have played with it all evening! Thanks again for running the contest and looking forward to "Banjo Equinox!" starting!

What a wonderful pair mommy and baby are. It is so exciting to have new life on the farm after waiting so long! He is beautiful, congrats.

Just an aside- when does Gibson start up lessons again? Come this fall, he could be a real help to you.

Oh man, Knox is beautiful. Though I must admit, as a life-long knitter I am very distracted by his gorgeous mama. My hands twitch with wanting to run them through that wool!!! What an incredibly beautiful girl she is! And, yes, she did a beautiful job with her baby and must be feeding him well. Hubby and three sons all gathered around to see last night and we were all impressed with the difference between Knox in the video and Knox in yesterday's photo.

No better reward for a job well done than adorable little ones!
Momma looks good too (the yarnie in me is attracted to all that lovely wool!)

Wow! He's so adorable. If I didn't have sheep envy before, I surely do now. Congrats to Cold Antler!

Baby is adorable, but I am really loving that wool. Looking forward to a chance to get in on that CSA. I want to knit that little lady into a sweater! Lol.

Udder is singular, by the way. Two teats, one udder.

He certainly is a sturdy little guy. I've never paid much attention to sheep but I think this breed is beautiful. when I zoom in on the photo, are those itty-bitty horn nubbins I see already on Knox's head? (I know nothing about sheep!)

Congratulations!! I'm with you on keeping Knox on the farm. If ever a little creature symbolized all you've worked for, he is the one. Well, he and Gibson, but there will never be a "first lamb" again, he is the one and only "first". Now, we're moving on with growing the flock. You're an excellent shepherd. Mimi

Planning for my future farm I hadn't really considered sheep, but I may have to rethink it. They are so sweet looking and Knox is a reall cutie!
