Thank you, he's a little stunner isn't he. Our next milestone will be the first black Hebridean lamb - when that will be goodness knows as Hebrideans are notoriously bashful at tupping time and tend to operate in the dark! Today we have a bit of snow and ice - sneachd na uan (snow of the lambs), but the sun is shining brilliantly. A good day to be outside I think!

Congratulations with the first lamb.
Springtime - It will be a busy time for you with the new lambs coming.

I like 'sneachd na uan'. I met a farm-hand in Inverness-shire who calls it 'peewit snow', for similar reasons. Sure enough, when we had a holiday in the Monadhliath Mountains one April, there were blizzards and dozens of lapwings.
Please post pictures of the Hebridean lamb when it makes it appearance!
