This is the number of sheep I want to get down to before winter! I have been asked by several people recently how many sheep we have and I haven’t had an answer. I knew ‘about’ how many sheep we had, but I was a little scared to get an exact number. I thought it was in the 70’s and that meant a lot of selling needed to be done. You can’t sell anything if you don’t know what you have, so I headed out to the pasture this morning to get a number and pictures. I was pleasantly surprised – the number is 62! That leaves only 12 to sell.
Unfortunately, a few are too young still 🙂 but the rest are old enough.
We have several wethers with beautiful fleeces that I would love to find homes for, including Smudge – look at all of that pretty black/brown fiber.
These pretty girls are sisters – Sadie and Nelly. They are daughters of Petunia.
You can see all of the sheep we have for sale on our website –
I need to start thinking about breeding groups but I am having a hard time since we just had more lambs. This year has made me realize that I really like lambing in January/February. The lambs grow so well on our lush, green, spring grass. That means only a month left to finalize who will be bred to who. We will be breeding 5 rams to 30 ewes – so many decisions!
