More Lamb Shots Just Because

New Lamb Shots

This year has been a good year for lambs. We are in a real drought situation in Southwestern Ontario, but I have so far been able to manage my pastures. The lambs are growing very quickly and I am very pleased with the quality of fleeces on their little bodies. Some are going to resemble a BFL while others have the length and openess of a shetland fleece. Most are for sale so if one catches your eye, please get in touch. Enjoy the pics.

Was It The Super Moon?

Wow, what a busy day of lambing! It seemed everytime we turned around, someone was in labour or had just given birth. Today we were busy worming the ewes and tagging the lambs that had been born over the past week. They are now outside with the non-pregnant members of the flock. We love watching them play and run around at dusk. Several photos to follow. Today four ewes lambed: three were singles and all ewe lambs and the fourth had twins and they were one of each sex. Lucky I was there when the last two arrived as they both were still in the bag and it was dark, so we wouldn't have s
een them until morning. Enjoy the pics!
