Well Hello Dolly!!
Out and About on the farmette!
Meet our sheep
|This is Bertie our ram|
|This is Ava the grande dame ~ she had triplets this year|
|This is Clementine (Clem for short).|
|This is Gracie we adopted her from a friend who hand reared her.|
|Ivy is our youngest ewe.|
This where the sheep lived over the winter:
|(The shadow makes it look like a witch is taking the photo!)|
It is joined to the back of the cows' barn. They have been inside since our first lamb arrived at the end of January, just before the snow.
|Ava inside with her new lambs.|
|You can just see Amour snuggled in the hay ~ we still miss her!|
They have been desperate to be outside and this week we eventually finished the fencing in their new field.
|This our neighbour Daniel telling R how it should be done!|
The sheep were all very happy to be outside at last.
We sadly lost a ewe (Anna) this winter she was our first ewe so it was probably her time to go, but it's never easy :o(
We now have one ram, four ewes and five lambs.
We hope to be able to buy a couple of ewe lambs from a friend this year to increase our flock ~ I will keep you posted!
|No one messes with Bertie Boy!|
Next week chicken ~ big and small!
