To tell if a black lamb will go brown, look around the eyes - if there is a paler ring, it will turn brown or moorit, if not it should stay black.  The tips of the black wool will be sun-bleached in the summer and look brown, but the wool closer to the body will stay black, or a very dark chocolate brown, which is still considered to be black.  Lovely twins  :) :wave:  We still have one Soay left to lamb, and 3 Hebs
