    Now my turn - Waiting for lambs

    I think today is the day! Her little tail has been up a lot and she looks like she's going to fall out. She had a big breakfast, so now I'll see if my prediction is accurate. :idunno

    Now my turn - Waiting for lambs

    5 expectant ewes. Three sbf and 2 finn. I believe this gal will be my first to go. She is a first timer with a huge bag. Her vulva went from red soft and floppy to dark and sort of swollen. I can't tell if she's dropped yet - both her and her mother carry a lot of weight is the butt area. 😁

    I found a new sheep podcast!

    It's called "Sheep stuff ewe should know" I've been listening to it while I do my chores and it's very informative and fun! They cover topics for both beginners and seasoned shepherds.

    When will my ewe lamb?

    I love playing that game! I noticed her tail was lifted. Did you get lambs? I think it's almost impossible to know for sure until THE DAY. I think it's also very difficult for other ppl who don't know your sheep because they all look different.

    Just got BFLs - i hate them

    They are very sweet and adorable! I love their little high pitched bleats. My blackies are brutes and hardly ever bleat.. I'm wishing I got mature animals, I feel like they're extra fragile as little lambs? Or is this just them?

I bought three - 1 ram and 2 ewes to add to my SBF flock in mid June and it's been hell. Hoof issues, scours, one got scours this morning and dropped dead by end...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?
