It’s still a little wet in these fields and I’m leery of causing soil compaction, but I really wanted to get the sheep out yesterday.
The ewes and lambs are in one field.
The pregnant ewes are in another pasture.
This is Esmerelda, happy to be grazing green grass.
Here is an indicator of a ewe that is ready to lamb–all the other sheep went to the pasture after three months locked in the barn and she chooses to stay inside.
Sure enough! Foxglove had lambs a few hours later.
Take a look at the horns on her ram lamb.
