He's beautiful, really lovely.


Personally I think the grandchildren have done better than OH naming mine "eric and ernie" I think not!!!

And theres more,
 We had such a lovely day yesterday that they were able to have a little while wandering round the yard, today it is raining and the minute I opened the door he was first out and not too happy when he was put back inside
Second pic is of Auntie Gobo who seems to be very happy with her little nephew

He is seriously cute.

What's in a name?  I name all mine starting with Snow.  First one was Snowflake, who was always known as Flo.  Her daughter is Snowdrift, known as Pom since she was a dear llittle tiddlypom when she was born.  Whatever you call them, the chances are they'll end up with something different.

Can't believe how cute that is. I'm interested to know what happens when you run out of suffices for 'Snow' names.


Personally I like the name. I have no idea how I am going to think of names for my lot. Mums all have plant or fruit names.

Still got Snowstorm and Snowcrystal to come, then I guess I'll just have to start again.  If Pom has a daughter next, then Cloud will be going for slaughter so I can recycle that name.

Apart from the fact that I just can't take to her, she has a fish tail teat so may not be able to be milked and I wouldn't be able to keep or sell any of her kids.

Very good, Daisy's mum! As Scottish as I am even I had to read some out to get them. Been living in England too long.
