Back Together

The sheep are back together after being in breeding groups for a little over a month.  If all the ewes are bred we should have about a dozen lambs in the spring.

Being in smaller groups allowed us to work with some of the ewes to make them more tame.  I'm happy that McCarthy will eat out of my hand now!  I hope the scrape on her nose will heal and the hair will grow back.  She's so pretty.  I don't want her to have a bald spot.

It's nice to see them in the pastures instead of split up all over the farm.

The rams have the reputation for scuffling over who is boss but the ewes were actually worse yesterday.  Some of the lambs got put in their place even though they are pretty big girls now.

Some of them are bigger than others!  Daylily is such a butterball but I think it is mostly fleece (at least I hope so). 

The rams are now in a front pasture with the alpacas.  The rams sniffed the alpaca and the alpaca spit on the rams and then they settled in around the hay feeder like they had always been together.

Now we are all ready for winter and hoping for little lambs
(like this one) in the spring.

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
