Good Girl, Purl



I snapped this picture of Purl and one of her lambs last week. The size of her lamb is impressive, and she raised 2 this size. She's not a big ewe, but she raises some nice lambs. I weaned the lambs a few days ago, and I milked her yesterday and got a quart of milk! I may try to milk her once a day and see how she does with that. I'd like to make some sheep cheese!

Purl has raised some amazing lambs! They're huge! She is such a great girl to let you milk her. I know most sheep won't stand for that. Good luck with the milking and cheese making! She looks so naked with her haircut! I'm sure she feels better. :)

Pretty picture. I hope you get lots of milk to make the cheese :)

Great job with the shearing! Her lambs are so big now! I hope they stop calling each other soon. Sheep cheese?? ;-) Love you, Momma
