Friends Come in All Shapes and Sizes

When we bought Velvet, the little Shetland ewe that was born in March of this year, we decided we'd let her wait until she was older before putting her in with the ram. We already had a spring Rambouillet lamb named Jade we were going to keep back, too. So when the ram went in with the ewes, Jade and Velvet became roommates. For now they have a little pen in front of the barn and can go in the barn for shelter.They're pretty close in age, but look at the difference in size! They seem to be getting along pretty well together, and are even pretty good about sharing their food.When it's time to take the ram out, Jade and Velvet will probably go in with the rest of the ewes. They seem to be pretty content right where they are, though, and maybe even getting a little spoiled. :)
