Meet Althea and Rae-Ann…
I picked them up a couple weeks ago from Sue at Rolling Hills. I am really excited about both of them, but especially Rae-Ann. We inquired about buying her as a lamb, but Sue had already made arrangements to buy her. She has matured into a beautiful ewe and has a great temperament.
Aren’t they pretty? That is what I thought too, until I noticed their smirks smiles. They knew something I didn’t 😉
They both had small udders when they arrived here but I didn’t think anything of it since they are mature ewes and Sue didn’t say anything about them being bred. Then I noticed this last night…(caution sheep rear ends)
what in the world!!!
Althea in particular looks suspiciously pregnant!
I called Sue and asked if there was any way they could be pregnant. At first she said no, but then she remembered her very handsome ram – Sundance – made a break for it and obviously had a couple romantic interludes 🙂
What a bizarre lambing season we have had this year – started in January and ended in ??? with lambs in every month inbetween. I separated the ewes with weaned lambs and left the ewes with lambs or lambs coming in the pasture that is connected to the barn so I can keep an eye on them and feed them a little extra. Even though they are unplanned and expected in the middle of summer I am still excited – I think 😉
