    Lovely! What do you do with the milk? Our neighbors milk 100 ewes a day and make the m o st beautiful cheese.

  2. Awww! So fun! Ours are on their way in April, so I can soak in yours while we wait. 🙂

    • With my big barn, its safe to let them lamb out early and because I have limited pasture land, it is a very good thing that the lambs are older and stronger when they move out onto pasture. Enjoy, I will get photos of the new ones up soon.

    Now is that baby PERFECT or what!!!!
    Raised a lot of sheep but never have tasted the milk but will give it a try soon.

    • Yes, you should, I find it to rich to drink as milk but to use in cooking, yogurt, cheese making or as cream in coffee, its amazing.. I have even chilled and skimmed cream on the top to make sheep butter, everyone tells me that it should not be but I have still done so.
