[Jacob-list] To keep or not to keep - my little Jacob sheep

Thanks everyone for the great input. I shall be mindful of it when I'm making my final decision (I still have some time before I have to decide). I'm gonna try to catch that ewe lamb with the longer tail and see if it is actually bone that's making it longer or if it's just wool. I noticed that her wool seems a little more open than the other two ewe lambs, so maybe that gives everything a longer appearance. I'll also have to feel her wool to see how soft or course it is. I just know that it stays looking cleaner and crisper than the wool of the other lambs. Both the black AND the white seem more pronounced, but maybe some people wouldn't even notice. I do have a tendency to notice minor details. All the lambs have been really healthy and energetic. They haven't needed any major intervention other than when I towel dried the older two after they were born. They were born on a super humid night and they weren't drying fast enough to stay warm despite their mothers licking. I haven't seen any indication that any of them are lacking in hardiness.
