As the ewes grow in girth – mostly from wool at this point – I’m envisioning their little lambs bouncing around the pens come late March. This year all their names will begin with a “C” and I’m curious to know if readers of this post might have some additional options to present. I’m needing a surplus for each gender since, from past experience, I know the sex ratio can vary considerably. In 2014, for instance, I had 7 ewes out of 9 lambs! (This was great for my flock growth, I might add.) I’ve listed the names I’ve come up with so far in the list below. Some are barrowed from humans, some from plant names (surprise, surprise) and some are whimsical/nonsensical, but just sound fun. I name the lambs in alphabetical order (mostly) and try to pair twins with the same starting letters. (I need memory aids at this point to remember who is who.) I’m expecting up to 20 lambs: 16 Babydoll and 4 3/4 Babydoll x 1/4 Finnsheep.
