Early this morning my final pregnant ewe gave birth. This time I was ready though. Unlike Izzy, Bea dropped and it was increadibly obvious! So I got up extra early to check and see what presents awaited me... twin ewe lambs. Which will make 4 ewes and no boys! Which is ironic because close friends who also have shetlands have had 12 ram lambs and 1 ewe lamb this year. That fifty fifty chance seems to be unefective. The names are tenitive HOWEVER, I am pretty sure that they will be Melody and Nova. (Nova is the one im not sure about. She might end up being Hamony). Melody is a brown\moorit gulmoget with a gorgous face just like Eloise. Nova\Harmony is black at the moment, not sure how that will turn out, with small white spots on her body, and facial markings. Both are sweet as can be!

|Eloise has gotten so big! She couldn't stand not having part of the spotlight so she insisted that I get at least one good picture of her...|
