When Joel and I woke up and went outside Snowflake had already had her ewe lamb. The lamb was already dried off and walking around so she must have had her in the wee hours of the morning. I was pretty sure based on Snowflake’s belly size that she was going to single. I would have loved twins, but its fun to be right!
Joel really wanted to name a girl, so I let him despite our previous deal. This is Inara. She gets her name from the show Firefly. She is a gray katmoget(dark belly and legs with a badger face pattern on the face). She has a bit of a white stripe on both sides of her abdomen so maybe she is brandet as well?
Shetland’s come in many different colors and have many different markings. It is intimidating. To make it even more difficult all the markings have names like, “katmoget,” “katmollet” and “gulmoget.” You can see how it could get confusing!
