A place for us to share with the world what goes on here - warts and all, and to fantasize about someday really understanding what it means to be "self-sufficient"...
Um . . . too much testosterone?He is A-DOR-A-BLE.
Because you're destined to have a fiber flock? I've got FOUR wethers here now!
OK, I get it. Breeding fancy lambs may not be in our future...but one ewe....please??? Is one too much to ask for?
I've had way more than my fair share of ram lambs but I won't ever complain again if I could just get two really nice ewe lambs out of Annabelle next spring!
I will have to come down and sprinkle the Girl Mojo on y'all!
You need to have twins then you have a better chance of getting a ewe lamb. OK, now what color are you going to call that one, I have 2 just like it, one ram and one ewe.
Adorable! But yes, frustrating when you want a girl.
Secret (the ewe) had a large stillborn single her first pregnancy. I had to pull it, it was traumatic. I was happy last year when she had her lamb easily and on her own. I didn't even care if it was a single. But this will be her last year lambing, as she doesn't seem inclined to give us twins. And talk about a nasty disposition as a mother....too protective, if there is such a thing...As for what color/pattern I'm going to settle on....well, give me a few days to think this over....
...says the wise voice from the back of the room...
