Mercia (left) and Alfred (right). True to form, Alfred, the little ram, maintains his vigilant, protective posture, while his smaller sister on the right, shows demure, more submissive posture. I wouldn’t think these postures were habitual for these lambs, but I’ve seen this particular pair do this enough to believe these are their real personalities showing thru, and it was evident from the hour they were first born! Not every twin behave exactly as these two are, but Alfred and Mercia are clearly fond of each other. Now they are old enough to notice and play with the other lambs, they still prefer one another’s company.
