Yesterday was another slow day – first-time mama, Havva, had a beautiful ewe lamb weighing 11 lbs 5 ozs. It took us about half an hour and a lot of patience to get her and the baby into a lambing jug, but we finally did and they are doing great! The little lamb has a lovely fleece. She is what one might call a true farm flock breed – Coopworth x Blue-faced Leicester x Border Leicester x Wensleydale x Cotswald. We can’t wait to see her fleece this fall!
(We will try to answer everyone’s questions from yesterday’s comments, later today. Have to get back to the barn… there’s a little activity…)
