Last Saturday was Farm Day and 8 of the 10 Farm Club members were able to make it here. We caught all the lambs and checked for split eyelids (a condition that sometimes happens in 4-horn sheep) and number of horns.
With this many people here it went quickly. Everyone else caught sheep and I weighed them. I don’t usually weigh lambs as they grow, but I’m interested in finding out if my BLF cross lambs grow at a different rate than the Jacob lambs. I’ll report back on that.
After working with the lambs everyone grabbed pitchforks and shovels and, with 3 wheelbarrows going, they made quick work of cleaning the barn.
What a great group of friends!
