Lambing season at Skinnarve Farm at Gotland “mums”

maria-7Two first time mothers to be, this is how a True Gotland sheep should look. The sheep are held in an open barn during the winter season until the spring grass is fit for lambs and mums.

They are born all black If they aren’t white. Have no horns and are vigorous and feisty and full of life. They usually have two or three lambs. At Gotland all sheep are called lambs, and the lambs are called lamb-kids.
