Oh he's gorgeous  :love:
I don't keep sheep or know a whole lot about them (we did have a few 'pet' ones when we were younger) but looking at this is making me reconsider  ;)

Nice pictures!

Just keep cleaning his backend with warm water, otherwise he might gunk up pretty quick.

Don't clean him too much - we overdid the cleaning once, the lamb smelt beautiful but was promptly rejected by the mother.

Since then we just clean the worst off, but not enough to change the smell.

Well only warm water will be fine, and do it next to the ewe. I last year took a lamb quickly into the house, washed him off and brought him back - less than 5 minutes, it took a few hours before the ewe allowed him to suckle again....

I know absolutely nothing about sheep & lambs .... but we were starting to get concerned about our newborn goat kid, and his very hairy dirty bum, but it cleared up soon when he began nibbling hay & anyway it was a b*gger to try and get off him!

No all lambs have that problem, even if you dock the tail or the naturally short tailed ones, like Shetlands. This stuff will become more like normal sheep p** when he starts to eat hay/grass (well hay in your case I guess, not much grass around). It is like this because he only takes in milk at the moment.

I have found that my goats are much better at cleaning their kids' backends than the ewes, but there is less wool in the way....
