The above photo is of Oopsie, a Babydoll Katahdin. As his name denotes, he was a mistake. The breeders Katahdin buck got over the fence to one of her Babydoll ewes and voila now there’s an Oopsie! Juno is our son’s first Babydoll lamb, Juno, who is a pure bred Babydoll. The funny thing is both these lambs were born the same week! Because Oopsie’s father was so much bigger, Oopsie will be larger than a standard Babydoll. They came home on 4/13. Oopsie is suppose to go back to the breeder as he is just a loaner companion until our son’s ram lamb is ready to come home. All the children want to keep Oopsie and at the time of this writing he’s only been here a day and a half! So we’ll see.
Just discovered a photo of Juno just after she was born with her twin sister, Jellybean, in an email from the breeder. Aren’t they sweet?
