What names have you given your sheep/Lambs? :angel:
Mae and Panda (white face, 2 black eye rings, 2 black ears).
They are our first 2 sheep, both are Katahdin ewes.
We got them for my youngest DD to show at the fair in February.
We have (or have had in the past) Buddy, Roger, Thelma, Louise, Annabelle, Geri, Autumn (born on the first day of autumn), Oprah, Tinkerbell, Millie, Lillie, Tillie (triplets), Amos, Luke, Frosty, Ella, Autumn, Mickey, Diablo, Gizmo.
Here's what we have today.
"Algernon", our 350# (Merino/Suffolk) ram
"Beulah", the matriarch (Merino/Suffolk) ewe
Her yearling triplets, "Merino", "Annie", and "Amy"
"Caroline" daughter of Algernon (7/8 Merino)
Beulah's current remaining wethers, "Freezer" and "Lambchop"... both market lambs
Currently our little flock is composed of:
Socrates...Icelandic ram (moorit)
Clover...Romney ewe (silver)
Sheledy...Icelandic ewe (moorit)
Naly...Romney ewe (dark grey)
Fern...Cotswold/Tunis/Lincoln Longwool ewe (white)
Meadowsweet...Cotswold/Tunis/Lincoln Longwool ewe (black)
Leggo...(Leg-O-Lamb)...Icelandic/Leicester Longwool freezer ram lamb
Chopper...(Lamb Chop)...Icelandic freezer ram lamb
Our first 6 sheep were Shelly, Kelly, Nelly, Cindy, Lindy and Mindy. That was 27 years ago. This years keepers are 164T, 165T, 166T.....179T. You get a lot less creative after the first 100 or so.
Our ram is Dumbledore. Then we have Tulip, Iris, Daffodil and Jasmine. Last year we named our lambs Zoe, Valery and Pearl. We have not yet named our new ewe lambs. We do not name our ram lambs as we avoid getting attached to them and names make that hard! All are St. Croix.
We named a little (very) lamb that kept escaping from her pen and wandering about "Beetle"
Rams: Patton, Bunny, Beauregard, Lancelot
Pet Wether: Ken
Ewes: Scamp, Crystal, Lucky, Coco Puff, Tipsey, Spunky, Charm, Lucy, Midge, Pearl, Twinkie, Lavender, Barbie, Suzanne, Aiedail, Margarita, Autumn, Friday, Tara, Peanut, Lizzie
All, except Beauregard, Peanut and Autumn, were born on the place.
I like your names.'Lambchop's a neat name. I should change my Belgian's name to Charliehorse! I'm trying to find names for a Cheviot yearling ewe & a 6 mo buckling I'll be getting soon.I was thinking of Alfalfa or Snowball for the buckling & Buttercup or Sweetpickle for the ewe.Katrinka VonApplemoss is a good name for the ewe too.So hard to decide. Good thing I don't name my chickens.

Magoo, Smiley, Marley, Rambo, Umbaa, Ferdinand, Harvey, Zeus, Spotz, Lars,
I sent two very overconditioned Lincoln ewes to a friend and he renamed them "Crisco" and "lardo"
And today some lambs got temporary names of.... butt-head, ding dong, Poopy, riblets, chop chop and you get the idea...we were moving them across the yard and either they layed down, did flips or somersaults or just put on the breaks, their go button didn't seem to work , just lamb gymnastics
I like Alfalfa and Buttercup
I like buttercup, too.
No sheep yet but I think we get our new-to-us shetlands in 2-3 weeks. The ewe-lambs needed names so we forwarded a few suggestions. Eager to see what names they received (registered sheep).
I've pretty much decided to name the male 'Alfalfa'. But I'm trying to decide between 'Sweetwater' & "Buttercup'. I like them both. :shrug:
ahhh sheepy, ...you crack me up! My wife names most everything we plan to keep, or at least not eat. (While it is harder eating something you've named, it doesn't make the meat any tougher...)
Rams: Ace, Mr. Millikin (bought off Mr. Milikin of course)
Ewes, (or Yo's for you old duffers out there...) We named our sheep all with the same begining letter for that year so we could right off how old they were. Big Momma, (a special sheep do a search on here for her story) Abby, Aerial, ....oh who really cares just send the dog after them, they'll either come or get bitten..... I guess special mention needs to be made for Danny, as he has his own special following on the Demo. circuit.
Ours include: Badger, Cinnamon, Rambo, Agnes, Pascalene (born on Easter Sunday), Olaf & Anya, Boris & Natasha.
Well, we got the ewe. We ended up naming her SWEETPEA. If I get another female, someday, she'll be called Buttercup. The ram will come in a week or 2 & his name will be Alfalfa.
She's doing well and obeys her mother's instructions to 'chew her food with 1,010 chews before swallowing.I sat in her barn stall with her and chatted so she'd get used to my scent & my voice. I hand fed her half of a pitless apple.She'll be fine here. :angel:
