New pictures of lambs for sale

We finally have pictures of most of the lambs that are currently for sale. They are all about the same age and would be best for fall or winter shows. Unfortunately they will be too big for Spring shows.  These photos were taken July 27, 2010.  You can click on the small image below for a larger photo. All are wethers except for #24, who is a ewe lamb. Below: #23 wether and #24 ewe lamb, twins born 2/19/2010. #23 has been sheared again since this picture was taken.

Bossy’s lamb has just hit the ground and he’s trying to get up and have a meal, but she’s just cleaning the dickens out of the poor guy. Old Bossy has always been our most vigilant and possessive mother. I have been fortunate to have three daughters and two granddaughters from her.  Bossy used to stand at the fence with her babies behind her and smash our Pit Bull, Lucy, through the fence. Lucy would grab her topknot, and they’d do this over and over. The sheep weren’t in any danger, since Lucy was 13 and incapable of getting through the fence. All Bossy had to do was walk away, but she seemed […]
