Dry as a Bone

Unfortunately, those are the only words that I can think of to describe my pastures at the moment. Hay is in scarce supply and the load that was supposed to come yesterday just got lightly rained on last night. The animals are so far coping quite well with the situation and some supplementary feed is offered. Two new arrivals came to the farm July 14th A lovely little satin angora buck from Nathalie and a beautiful fawn katmoget ewe lamb from Bill's AI programme. Both have settled in nicely. I added a picture of Rueben, our livestock guardian, who keeps all of our woolies and birds safe from harm. Enjoy.

Iss She or Isn't She?

I have been wondering if the spotted ewe lamb born last month is perhaps a gulmoget. Any opinion would be welcome. Thanks
