We finally were able to get someone to come out and shear. Love the fact that there is so much wool in Our shop right now! I just have to skirt and wash it up before I ship it off to get processed. I was completely shocked at how much more wool we got off our mini Cheviots compared to the Shetlands. Hoping the shetliot crosses will inherit that trait from their mamas!
We have a new ram that will be living with us later this summer/ early fall! Nancy put me in touch with Lynda from Belle Manor Farm in SW Missouri. She had a beautiful little ram lamb named Buckeye that was born this spring. He has beautiful color and will be our stud ram that will replace McDuff when he goes back home. He is a spotted yuglet. He is the one standing in the photos. His face reminds me of a panda!
And here are the latest pictures of the two shetland rams that were the last to be born.
This is Little Dixie's Robin. He looks as though he is a grey Katmoget.
And we have Little Dixie's Batman. He is a black Krunet with a little white on each side of his face as well.
The photos are not the best since they were taken with my phone. We are shearing next Wednesday so hopefully I will get some good pictures of that process.
Also I plan on weaning all the lambs in the middle of June so they should be ready for their new homes the first part of August.
