The After-Christmas party

This post is for all the folks who've written to ask about an update on lambing. Sorry. I've been crazy-busy lately and I tend to forget that not everyone does Facebook. (But if you DO, follow us at Farm Fresh Forensics, and Red Feather Navajo Churros, and well, duh, Sheridan Rowe Langford!)

Lambing should end on May 28.  All the brown ram's babies landed on the ground in March and we impatiently waited for the white ram lamb's babies. And waited. And waited. Two weeks ago we sheared the ewes so we were better able to monitor any pregnancies. Nobody appears to be bagging up enough to be pregnant. Unless someone seriously surprises me, we're done for the season. I was hoping the young ram lamb would get a crop this year, but appearently none of my older girls took him seriously. No worries. He'll be the primary ram for the next crop. 

So here are some obligatory pics of some of the lambs from this year! All these lambs were sired by the brown ram, MLC Chance.

Congrats on all the healthy lambkins! They are adorable!

If he were a bull, I would get the young ram semen tested and make sure all swimmies are swimming. Just a thought. Seems to me you should have gotten some lambs there. If you hadn't wanted those ewes bred, you can bet they would all have been pregnant. They are pretty lambs.

He was pretty young and small when we put him out there and he wasn't left with them for too long. If it happens next year then he'll end up in freezer camp. :)
