It’s been a crazy last couple of weeks. Mr. Seven did an awesome job getting everyone bred in a short period of time. It’s really confusing for the new mothers when there are so many little babies squealing at the same time, but they got everything sorted out.
Once again I am very proud of our first-time moms for knowing exactly what to do. All of our first-timers have had twins, and all could feed their babies with no help.
With two moms left to lamb, this year has been a lot easier than last year, when we lambed in February. Most were born during the day, and all of the lambs seemed to bounce right up, find the teat and get going.
Last year we had a lot of requests we could not fill for show lambs for Spring county fairs, because our lambs would have been be too old, but this year our mid-late March lambs should be just right. As much as I hate to part with them, we will be selling some yearling and baby registered Southdown ewe lambs as well. It’s a constant battle against overcrowding here!
