More sad news. I went out to feed this morning, and found the second little twin ram lamb dead. I'm not sure what happened, he wasn't acting sick yesterday at all. *sigh* What a rough year. I had another moment of "I'm selling every animal on this place", but after a little while I decided I needed a plan. Now that I have two purebred Southdown ewes (Darla and her lamb) and a ram, I am going to sell Bean and Barley (the crossbred ewes). I do need to cut down on my numbers a bit, to make things more manageable now that feed costs are skyrocketing. It makes sense for the crossbred ewes to go. Does anyone want a couple ewes?
And here are more pictures of Darla's ewe lamb. I'm still trying to come up with a name. Maybe Uno. Or Lucky? Just kidding. I think.
I just love her. She's a pretty girl.
