Welcome Coal

I thought that I would post a couple of photos of Coal, my blue faced leicester ram. He has very light and soft feeling fleece that should be wonderful to spin. I can't wait until shearing. He was readily accepted into the flock by the other rams and has settled in nicely. I have also included some photos of Rueben, hard at work guarding his babies. Every spring when lambs are born Rueben lays just outside their pen in the barn and then just outside the fence when they go out. He rarely moves and most times doesn't eat either and just watches. It is why I can sleep at night when I hear the coyotes howling in the distance.
