We have finally named our little lamb that was born this spring. I had such a hard time with this one. Her personality is not liked any little girl ewe I have ever had, this one is tough and stands up for herself. She's quite a tom boy in ever way, so it was hard to give her a flower name which my Babydoll line is, named after flowers.
I looked at sites and went through all the names and nothing came to me until I started reading about Shakespeare's "Ophelia", and then it hit me, that will be her name. Ophelia named all the flowers and this is how this little girl is! As you can see in the pictures, "Ophelia" takes what is hers, jumping in the trough to get her fair share of hay, going under and between the legs of the others to get to the food first...she's one tough girl!
Here in this picture she has her butt up in the air getting deep into that trough to get what is hers! She does this everyday and will take food even out of the alpacas mouth!
I caught this great picture of all three generations of my "Babydoll" Southdown girls. "Ophelia" is on the left, her aunt "Lily" behind her, her grandmother "Belle' in the middle and her mom, "Rose' is on the right. I was trying to get pictures of "Ophelia" and they all posed for me, what luck!
