Baa Baa Black Sheep, it's a wee black Tup!
My only black ewe that is half Jacob, half Scottish Blackface had a nice ram lamb this afternoon. The ewes seem to be in good rig. No one looks thin. Tomorrow is going to be above average in temperature so at least I don't have to worry about the other ewes having problems lambing in the bitter cold. It seems its in like a lion and out like a lamb for real this March! Tup is a term used by Scots and folks in northern England for a ram.
