We woke up to a glorious, sunny morning yesterday so I took my camera out while I did morning chores. Here is a picture of the ram lambs and wethers along with their buddy, Gallo.
There always has to be one trouble maker that prefers to be in the feeder!
After my post about the luscious grass, I just couldn’t help myself and I let the ewes out for a little while. They really enjoyed it!
Kenleigh’s Sahara and Kenleigh’s Eclipse
Windy Acres Darling
Zettle’s Isabel and Kenleigh’s Holly
I was amazed to see how thick it was back here. This is where one of the chicken barns was and it is VERY high in organic matter and fertilizer. We spread annual rye grass last year and according to the farmers around here it can grow on a New York sidewalk in the winter 🙂 I have been very happy with it and it is very palatable to the sheep as well as being high in protein.
some of the girls are starting to get pregnant bellies 🙂
Here is a picture of some of the ewe lambs.
In the front we have – Kenleigh’s Maxima and Kenleigh’s Infiniti. The two lilacs are – Timber’s Hallelujah and Mud Ranch’s Jonquil. The little piggys in the back are Meridian Bronwen and Meridian Hailey. We haven’t used round bales in the past, but we were going to be a little low on hay this year due to our long summer, so we bought a couple round bales and they are working great for the ewe lambs. I have a cattle panel in front of it to keep them from wasting a bunch.
Finally we have the big boys.
Here is Wrangler looking very unimpressed with the camera 🙂
Sending a ray of sunshine to each of you on this beautiful day!
