Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Expecting lambs

It looks like we are going to have lots of these cuties in early spring!

Our yearling, Ziggy, as a lamb
We can't wait to meet her.

Our new Jacob Sheep have been in Colorado the past two months (at their previous home) being bred before they come to the Red Farmhouse.  We've been anxiously awaiting the ultrasound date to tell us if they were all expecting.  It looks like they are, although one looks too early to know for sure so she is still with the ram.

The favored herd sire from Moose Mountain is retiring this year but he was matched with our lady, Tiny.

We are really excited to know he still had it.  They make such beautiful lambs together so we are thrilled about that pair.

Now we just have to wait a couple more weeks
 til they arrive on the farm.

  2. You are earlier than us with this stage. Our rams are 'going out' this Saturday. Our lambs arrive in April? Are yours earlier? If our lambs come too early, they're likely to be born in really,really bad weather. That's not good if they're weak or have had a difficult birth.
    Gorgeous animals you have there... :)

  4. Cool! They have such neat coloring!We are waiting on our flock of sheep. They were supposed to be delivered by now. I'm starting to think the owner changed his mind!
