Our Last Lamb Arrived

He hasn't got a name yet - because he arrived at 6.30 in the morning and the Committee couldn't get together to decide before some members had to go to school and work.

I should be able to inform you all by tea-time!!

If there are any geneticists out there, I would love to know how a white ewe and a black and white ram manage to produce a jet black lamb!!!

All I can remember is something about dominant and recessive genes and peas....I was really interested in Biology, but not terribly good at it!

Anyway, here he is, bless his little woolly legs.

Genetics is complicated, but basically that little lamb got all the "black" gene from one parent...and that was enough to dominate the white from the other parent. Or something like that - been a while since I studied biology! :-)

Cute little lamb...

You should name him Blaze :-) He is adorable! Perhaps there was more black in the grandparents??
