Smart dad  :)  Soay lambs are SOO cute  :)  We still have only one set of Soay twins, although we are halfway through lambing, and they are mostly white with some black spots - easy to pick out in our field full of black lambs  ;D  We have one mouflon pattern ewe whose own dam was white and she ran with a black tup - so don't know what colour lambs to expect.  We want to get some more mouflon pattern ewes for next year as they are really what Soays are all about  :)
