Beatrice’s Lamb

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Beatrice had her lamb on Friday.  A little purebred texel ewe.  We’ll add her to our breeding stock.  Isn’t she a cutie?  Not sure what we’ll call her yet.  I’d consider Eugenie (as in British princesses Beatrice and Eugenie) if I only knew how to pronounce it!   Does anyone know?   Maybe we’ll stick with something British, like Victoria?

    She is adorable. All of the lambs look so sweet. Thanks for the pictures.

      Thanks Sandy. We’ve had two more kids in the last two days. I’ll get photos of them up soon. One is the most adorable creature ever born on our farm. I hope my photos will do her justice.

    Hi, I came across your blog via Craftster and love reading it – my husband and I have plans to set up a similar smallholding in a few years and it’s nice to see how someone else does it! Plus the pics of all your kids and lambs are a lovely reminder of spring to someone currently without any animals 🙂

    As for Eugenie – lovely name for the little ewe even if (as a Brit) I find it entertaining that you know who the princesses are – not so well-known over here! You pronounce it ‘you-jean-ee’ (or perhaps ewe-jean-ee would be more appropriate…)

      Thanks so very much, Silverblackbird. It’s nice to know someone from the UK is reading about our little farm in the sticks of Virginia. 🙂 As someone who called in sick from work the day Diana married Charles, you can rest assured I’m ‘up’ on my royals. Thanks for the pronunciation, Eugenie it is!

    When I read your post, I pronounced it in my head “Ewe-Jean-e”. Hehe I think it’s cute. 🙂 It’s actually originally a French name.

    According to
    In the U.S. A. it is often pronounced “yu-JEE-nee” with the stress on the middle syllable. But it’s actually a French name and is correctly pronounced “UH-zhen-EE” (first syllable like “er” with a silent “r”).
