Oh, hey, one of these is NOT a Southdown lamb! Spring lambs are due during the month of March, 2016. We will want to sell breeding-quality ewe lambs, show-quality wethers and ewe lambs, and of course we will have lambs available for custom processing. Stay tuned for more baby pics and news!
Here are the ewe lambs we have selected as breeding stock. We have one left. These pictures were taken at 10-13 weeks old. They are really muddy because during their entire lives, it rained pretty much every day. The good news is, if we have not gotten footrot yet, we probably never will! Also, no pneumonia. These are strong little girls! Please excuse the MUD.
Lambing season kicked off during the worst weather of the year. Sleet, followed by snow. The adults don’t mind the dry fluffy snow, but the sleet caused all of them to droop and be nervous. We had twin ewe lambs born during a sleet storm. Fortunately I was there to help, and they ate right away, so they are fine. I nearly froze to death but these beautiful faces make it all worthwhile! This years’ lambs will have birthdays between March 4 and March 22. We will have pedigreed ewe lambs to sell as well as lamb for winter holidays.
