It was so much fun having everyone guess the little doeling's weight last month that I'm going to do it for the Shetland ewe lamb. Here are a few hints. She weighs a lot more than the little doeling weighed! In fact, she weighs more than either doeling at a month of age, which I find fascinating since their adult weights will probably be within about 10-20% of each other. For those of you who know nothing about Shetlands, I will also add that she is well under 10 pounds. We weighed her when she was one day old, so she had already sucked down a good amount of mama's milk at that point. Of course, she'd also been going potty, so maybe the milk consumption doesn't matter much. Make your guesses in pounds and ounces.
And the prize is ... your choice of either five ounces of Shetland roving or a four-ounce bottle of my massage oil. If you choose the roving, you can choose between white, black, gray, and marbled black and white (from a spotted ewe). If you choose the massage oil, you can choose from among the many fragrances that I have available.
Deadline for entering the contest is Thursday at midnight central daylight time zone. Winner will be posted Friday.
