I first met Tammy when she brought her little Aussie out for herding lessons. She has become a friend and is a great lady. Today my son and I visited her farm to see her lambs and all the rest of the critters she has.
She bought 3 ewe lambs from us 2 years ago and borrowed a ram lamb from us to breed them. Unfortunately she lost her Dorper ram before he could breed her Katahdin ewes, so the Jacob ram bred them as well. The results are very interesting…
for instance, this is a Jacob x Katahdin cross and the real shocker is that her brother has horns!!!
They all have really cool markings…
and are very cute!
This is one of her Jacob lambs. She is a 4-horn and has a lovely fleece.
This is her other Jacob ewe lamb. She is a very pretty 2-horn lilac. She liked posing for the camera 🙂
These little guys were my son’s favorite! He thinks it’s funny when they suck on his fingers…
and they were very willing to do just that 🙂
She also has Magpie and Harlequin ducks…
Some beautiful chickens that provided farm fresh eggs for us – thank you!
and a very handsome rooster!
This little lamb was sleeping when the chicken must have passed a little too close because she jumped up and butted the chicken out of the way.
We had a great visit.
Oh my gosh! Tell Tammy those little lambs are sooo cute!!!!!! Next time I want to come:)
Very cute lambs!
What kind of chickens are those? They’re beautiful!
I don’t know what kind the rooster is, he was a freebie. The hen is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte – recently on Eggbid.com there was a pair that sold for $376!!! Tammy got a few chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery.
Holy Cow! That’s a crazy price for some chickens! I think that’s where my MIL get’s her chicks… Murray McMurray. Thanks for letting me know, they’re very pretty.
Just one more thing I (don’t) need… chickens. I do want some simply to scratch the manure and eat bugs. 😉
