CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - There’s a new addition to the Animal Forest at the Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site in Charleston.

It appears that a sheep named “Meryl Sheep” had a lamb late last month and the new lamb goes on display on Wednesday. There are now three Katahdin (kuh-TAH’-dihn) sheep at Charles Towne Landing.

Katahdin sheep, named after the mountain of the same name which is the highest peak in the state of Maine, were bred by a farmer there in the second half of the 20th century.

Charles Towne Landing on the Ashley River dates to 1670 and is the site of the first permanent European settlement in what became South Carolina.
