I was holding him when I stepped inside the barn and some of the ewes came over to the gate to inspect him. (Truth be told they were really just looking for feed, but they sniffed around at him anyway and he didn't seem to mind.) He looked everything over while his sister, MacchiOTTo, ran on up ahead to see the lambs. She loves to feed them hay and pet them. The stacks of hay bales are now called her fort and when the lambs run around she says they are playing tag.
We got out the youngest lambs which was a set of twins and let the kids pet them and took some pictures. MacchiOTTo was about 9 months old when she saw the lambs for the first time and here shOTT of Espresso is 5 months old. I was a little worried about how he would react to the lambs but as you can see in the pictures he did great. He was happy to touch the lambs. We took a few pictures to document the occasion of our future farm boy.
