Let's name some sheep, shall we?

It's hard to believe that I have let these new ewes go nameless for so long but it couldn't be helped. Between working on the book, picking up the house for the party and all the sadness of last week, I just haven't had the time or the brain space to get to it.

But I figured I might as well make a start tonight with the ewe lambs. Remember, we are naming this group after islands.

These two lovelies are twins, believe it or not. 
We named this one Nantucket, but we're calling her Nan. She has the sweetest face, doesn't she?
Her sister is the smallest of the new lambs and also the most charming. Her name is Martha's Vineyard, Martha to her friends.
She is just so darned cute I can hardly stand it. I mean, those ears! Just look at those pink, stick-outy ears. 
Nan and Martha are always together. Martha is definitely the braver of the two and will walk right up to my camera and nuzzle my hand. Heaven!
The other two lambs were a bit harder to name. 301 is a very serious looking lamb...
but not always. I decided to honor her dignified side by naming her Victoria.
And this little gal is just as cute as a button. We're calling her Capri.

Tomorrow we'll work on the adult ewes.

Just want to hug them. Love the names (especially Martha..lol).
I love how you hone in on their personalities and find just the right name.
Cute. Cute. Cute.

Great pics! I love you new islands! Being a twin myself, I can understand why Nan ans Martha have different hairstyles!

I am loving these faces! If I could just smell their lamby little breath and give them a squeeze... ah!

I think we need a block island lamb, or a Caymen to brighten up our new england winters.
