The sheep love it when we prune the trees back and give them a chance to get the fresh leaves. Nom nom nom! Of course, the young ones are just starting to figure all this stuff out. Baldek is the best teacher.
Echo and Kalf are “thrilled” to be at the Vet’s office today to be wethered (we have not told them that part yet...shhhh).
The three lambs between 4 and 6 days old, adventuring outside with their mothers and a couple of our other sheep. Echo, doing his best to impress the ladies and then having to dodge Baldek, is quite humorous.
And that can only mean one thing… Lots, and LOTS of running for little sheeplets!
These pictures were taken on April 25, 2019, the day after quarantine was over and were these lambs happy to be out and about! They had lots to explore and nothing was going to slow them down.
The Babydoll Southdown breed is small to begin with. When it comes to lambs, and specifically finding a halter that you can use on them… Good luck.
Amy decided to take a shot at making some herself and we tested them out last night. We decided to give them a little bit of grain to take their mind off the halters while they had them on for a few minutes.
I think they worked quite well. What do you think?
Another “catch up” video. This video is from a few hours after Anja and Asta were born. We put collars on them so we could tell them apart.
I failed at getting video updates posted in a timely manner so I am catching up now. This video was taken a few minutes after Echo was born when Rosemary came up to see what was going on with this sudden addition of a tiny sheep to her flock.
We thought she didn’t get pregnant this year but Rosemary proved us wrong today. We were out late tonight and, upon our return, we found the latest addition to our flock. Rosemary had a baby ram tonight!
We have not yet decided on a name for the little guy but we will post an update when we do. For now, meet lamb #9 for this year.
Our three babies got their fancy new tags put in today, and their immunizations. They were….impressed? Regardless, they did well and we got some cute pictures to share!
On Friday, April 12 2019, we brought home nine additional sheep (1 ram, 3 ewes, and 5 lambs). This brings our total sheep population up to 18. Three adult rams, six adult ewes, one adult wether, and eight babies (four rams and four ewes). Our baby rams are all white, and the baby ewes are two black and two white.
We have the new sheep in quarantine (standard practice when bringing in new sheep) and we are working on getting all the registration paperwork done. Once this is completed, and once the quarantine time is done, we will be posting information about lambs available for sale. In the meantime, here are some preview pictures.
Spring 2019 is here and, with it, our first new baby has arrived!
Our youngest female (Violet) was bred to our youngest Ram (Delta) and she gave birth to “Echo” at 3:30 am on March 23rd.
