It's a girl and Posie's Polar Bear!
Well little Pansy is still napping...you know that birthing stuff is tiring business! But Posie had one lamb this afternoon, with my help. She's a first time mom so a single is no surprise. Her lamb is a little ram, all white! I decided to name him Polar Bear, P for Posie, and polar because he's all white, and Bear because he is descended from Wooly Bear's line. Polar Bear is a Friesian, Shetland combo!
Little Polar Bear, you're so CUTE!
