The Chocolate Line

Price, like her mother, ChocoButt, lambs in the daylight.

Again this year, Price's newborn lambs welcomed me when I arrived home. Again, they were big and hearty and looked like they were several days, not a few hours, old.

But instead of delivering white or spotted lambs that would carry on the ChocoButt line, Price delivered a reddish-tan ram lamb and a ewe lamb that almost looks like ChocoButt, the late farm matriarch.

That ewe lamb is the color of rich, dark chocolate, and knowing her parentage, I'm betting she will be strong-willed, determined, and a lover of food.

In the photos, the lambs are just a few hours old. The other ewes are shown in the background.
