Nova and her boys went outside for the first time this afternoon. All the boys came to check out the new guys through the fence.
The lamb with the spotted face, Apple, was only interested in eating, but the brown lamb, Ash, was fascinated by Duke. Nova narrowly headed him off before he could crawl right through the fence. I told the little guy he might want to wait until he’s a week or two older before picking a fight with Duke.
I think this lamb might be related to Their Royal Woollinesses Princess and Nova. Just maybe. Ridiculously precocious personalities are apparently genetic. Nova started trying to boss Duchess and Lady around when she was only a week or so old, and Princess is, well, Princess.
The boys were obviously fascinated by the wider world. Pretty much all they want to do so far is eat. And check out the big boys.
Mira came charging over to
beat up check out the “competition” but after a few glares from Nova she decided to pester me instead.
Lady and Holly tried to check out the new lambs as well, but Nova butted Lady in the head and wouldn’t let them anywhere near.
Princess will probably lamb over the weekend, and it’s about time. The poor girl is huge. I’m not sure whether to expect a third set of twins or another monster lamb like Prince Bran. I suppose we’ll find out shortly!
