Our lambs began arriving on March 23rd. First set of twins we found after arriving home from work out in the pasture basking in the sun. I had left that morning thinking, Aurora looks like she’s having contractions but she’s still a few days out. What do I know? Twin ram lambs both moorit mouflons. […]
Here are some of our yearlings. They are looking really good. Very pleased.
So hard to be patient this time of year. As is usual I get antsy a couple weeks ahead of schedule. The earliest date we should see lambs is March 23rd, so I should enjoy this last weekend before starting the routine checks. We will have a few early girls and get busier towards the […]

Some of my boys let me cool them down with the hose running under their bellies tonite. They quickly figured out that feels oh so good. I always dread this hot spell we get in July and August. Hoping to have the shearer here within the next week. Lambs are growing like crazy. Pita and […]
