Happy was a bottle baby --a beautiful Lincoln cross lamb from our friend Mary's flock. He came to us during a cold snap that made it unusually hard for the ewes to dry the babies fast enough when they were born. He arrived with a bunch of other lambs and tromped around the house for a few months til the weather warmed up.
Happy's fleece is on the medium side of soft, locks average 4 inches and a sort of wavey crimp. He is very much living up to his name and his best friends are Frosty & Gilmore.
2017 update: Happy always lives up to his name! He is absolutely adorable of course. He and his friend Frosty are moving into the special needs/retirement group of sheep this fall. He's moving around fine, just not keeping weight on like he should. Grain and a slower paced group it is!
