UPDATE 7/16/12: The votes are in, and our new sheep has a new name – Bolt. (Sorry, all you Lambert fans!)

The New Sheep in the Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland Park

We’re getting ready to welcome a new member of the Circle D family to the Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland park, and we need your help. This Friday and Saturday, July 13-14, come see our new sheep and help us name him! Disneyland park guests can vote for their favorite, and when all the votes are tallied, our new sheep will have a new name.

I’ll update this post when we learn the winning name, so be sure to check back!

Lambert

I’ve got good news! We told the Circle D team that Disney Parks Blog readers suggested the name Lambert, so it has been added to the names that guests can vote for. Be sure to visit Big Thunder Ranch on July 13-14 to cast your vote!

Patrick on July 11th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

How could you name him anything else BUT Lambert?

Kathy on July 11th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

“Lambert”

Stephanie from AZ on July 11th, 2012 at 6:33 pm

I add my vote to Lambert! Cute :)

Jody from CA on July 11th, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Bud Luckey! (for the narrator and writer of the Pixar short “Boundin’” about a sheep who learns to be comfortable in his own skin.)

Wasn’t clear if you are taking name suggestions here on the Parks Blog or if we just can vote in person at Disneyland.

If you are taking suggestions, I’d like to make one.

I’d like to suggest “Sherman” in tribute to Robert Sherman whom the Disney family lost this past March.

The Sherman Brothers through their music have left an indelible mark on Disneyland, so I thought it might be a nice touch to have this little “wink” of a tribute in Robert’s memory.

 

Erin Glover on July 12th, 2012 at 8:35 am

Great suggestions! Voting will take place at Big Thunder Ranch in Disneyland park on July 13-14, and guests will be able to choose from among names selected by the Circle D team.

Its good to know that others remember that cartoon.

What about Baaaob. Bob but will a little baa in it.

13

Abbie from TX on July 11th, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Yep, Lambert is what I immediately thought of. Even though he’s a lamb & not a lion :)

14

Otto on July 11th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Wolly!

Crissa on July 11th, 2012 at 8:38 pm

Baaaambi :)

Barbara Daniela from ON on July 11th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

How about Little Lou?

17

Michele on July 11th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I’m another vote for Lambert! I love that cartoon. Although, Sherman and Bud Luckey are cute too!

18

Dean on July 11th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Lambert or Bud Lucky

Elizabeth from MI on July 11th, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Shamus!

Antoinette from CA on July 11th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Gotta be Lambert.

21

Christina on July 11th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

How about Frosty?

Laurie from PA on July 11th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Baby Ewie

23

Ellen on July 11th, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Since he’s a Big Thunder sheep, I vote Baxter.

24

Henry from CA on July 12th, 2012 at 12:05 am

How about Baabie.

25

Francine from NY on July 12th, 2012 at 12:05 am

Since the lambs in ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Toy Story’ do not have names, my vote is for Danny (from ‘So Dear to My Heart’) or Max (even though Max is the sheepdog from ‘The Little Mermaid).

26

Matthew on July 12th, 2012 at 12:20 am

I’m sorry, but I also must cast my vote for Lambert. I think it’s fitting… and I just watched the short :)

27

Natasha from CA on July 12th, 2012 at 12:22 am

How about Wool-E?

28

Kimberly from PA on July 12th, 2012 at 2:36 am

Shelby would be a great name.

29

Sarah on July 12th, 2012 at 2:37 am

La-a-a-a-a-a-ambert!

Samantha on July 12th, 2012 at 4:27 am

Eugene :] (or Flynn)

31

Lisa from NJ on July 12th, 2012 at 7:04 am

Little Thunder!!

32

Hillary on July 12th, 2012 at 7:39 am

2 questions for Ms. Glover: Is the sheep male or female? Are you taking suggestions for names or asking us simply to choose our favorite from a provided list?
Thanks for the “heads up” on the new addition to the ranch.

 

Erin Glover on July 12th, 2012 at 9:24 am

Our new sheep is a male, and voting will take place inside the park (not here on the blog – sorry for the confusion!) at Big Thunder Ranch on July 13-14.

33

Christopher on July 12th, 2012 at 8:09 am

Aren’t sheep, girls; and goats, boys? If that’s the case, name HER Ellie May!

34

Emily on July 12th, 2012 at 8:19 am

Boundin’ like the Pixar short :)

Dallas, after Dallas McKennon, who provided the host voice in the Big Thunder Mountain attraction, or Tumbleweed, the name of the boomtown associated with the attraction in the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

38

Misti on July 12th, 2012 at 11:31 am

My suggestion is Lala. One of my sons favorite books is about a lamb named Delilah. When he was younger he couldn’t say Delilah it came out Lala. We thought it was so cute.

39

Sean from IN on July 12th, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Dolly. And everyone after that Dolly.

Alexandria on July 12th, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Mckenna!

Friend on July 12th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

For 3 reasons I would name the little sheepster “Huckleberry” from Disney’s Tombstone words of Doc Holiday, it’s timely reference by Mark Twain, and I will tell you the third if it is picked.

42

Abigail on July 12th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Ramsay is a cute name for a male sheep!

43

Ariel on July 13th, 2012 at 1:45 am

Name him Milo from the Disney movie Atlantis! I had an FFA sheep named Milo and he was great! Loved him!

44

George on July 13th, 2012 at 10:02 am

Baaaashful…

Mike on July 13th, 2012 at 1:01 pm

Flamby!

Trina on July 13th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Lambert or Wool-E. I really like those two.
