Another Lamby

Just a quick note: another ewe lamb was born on the farm yesterday to Zinnia. She is good sized and beautiful with a perfectly round brown spot on her back. Got to think of a flower name with spot or dot in it! That brings the total to five new lambs born to my flock, and at least two more due in the near future. (I guess it was a long cold winter in Wisconsin.)

You could name her "Susan" for "Black-Eyed Susan," which have Brown centers...so the "Brown-Eyed" part wouldn't confuse people on her face.

And really, how great a name for a sheep is "Susan"?

Duh, I didn't edit my comment. Substitute "Brown" for "Black" and "brown centers..."

Goodness.

Hi Rebecca,
I'm enjoying your blog. Was searching 'basque cheese' as fodder for a novel i'm writing (first draft completed) starring a female basque cheesemaker. Started out in France studying cooking many moons ago. I live in Philly now. I'm going to basque country in July for two weeks (was there two summers ago for first trip). questions if you don't mind answering
- do you really milk them all by hand? how many at a time and how long does it take and how much yield
- most common is sheep's milk in ossau iraty. do any make goat's milk cheese?
- many buy their milk, right? have you bought or do you use all your own milk

looking forward to reading more. -- Lori
