Naming of the Lambs

Every year at "Meet the Lambs Day" people see the signs with the lambs' names, breeds and date of birth and ask about the names, who names them, what the origin of the names are etc. Well it is Raven who names them, and the stories behind then are a wide and varied as the names themselves. Sometimes they are named immediately, sometimes it takes a day for their name to reveal itself to Raven.

The first year we were here Raven named the bottle babies, the next year she named the bottle babies and a few other noteworthy lambs. Over the following years more and more lambs started getting names, not always revealed, sometimes she kept the names to herself. Then in 2008 Raven decided to publicly name all the lambs, since then we have posted a log each year of the lambs as they are born and it has become one of the most watched features of our web site.

We typically start lambing around March 20th and lamb through the end of April so be sure to check back often during that time to see the latest edition of "The Naming of the Lambs".
