this is my second year with my new ram and I could not be more pleased with how he is producing with my girls.. strong easy birthing lambs, outstanding growth rates.. and I don’t think I have ever had such a pretty colorful flock
While I could stand to see a tiny bit more weight on a few ewes, given that they are nursing twins, and that the pasture is just starting flush now, I am quite pleased. The lambs on the other hand are huge! The boy mob in the last photo will be weaned by the end of the month.
I love seeing my shaggy hair sheep shedding out their wool, I like it even more when they shed and they have good body condition under that wool.. over the next two or three weeks, she will shed out all her winter coat and a sleek summer hair coat will be her summer dress 🙂
