It`s a Girl! Baby Lamb Born Unexpectedly at This Year’s 90th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair

Baby Lamb Born Three Weeks Earlier than Expected Creates Added Excitement at the Royal

By , Farms.com

When the Farms.com media team was visiting this year`s Royal Agricultural Winter Fair on Thursday, we were pleasantly surprised to witness firsthand a mother ewe who had just given birth minutes before are our arrival. While we found it strange that the ewe had just given birth to a baby with no one seemly to notice – we didn`t think too much of it other than it was very cute and exciting.

Since our visit yesterday, Farms.com has learned that the 8 lb female lamb was born much to the surprise of her owners who not expecting her arrival for another three weeks. The mother ewe was to be shown individually as a part of the sheep competition on Thursday, but instead she was shown alongside her new born baby – something that the competition wasn`t expecting. It has been reported that the both mother and baby are doing well. The mother ewe is owned by Red Ribbon Livestock and Robson Acres, who hail from Millbrook, ON near Peterborough.

The new born lamb is being temporarily called "Royal Lady". However, the public is invited to offer up suggestions on the naming of the lamb by tweeting @RAWF90.

The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is celebrating its 90th anniversary and runs until Sunday, Nov.11, 2012. The Royal is the world`s largest agricultural show and attracts international visitors and locals alike.
