    Wanted to get through more of my waiting list, so offered both of Latte's lambs for sale. Waiting codon results to arrive and then we'll see if the person will put down a deposit.

    Have someone wanting a white, open faced, ewe lamb, but that one may not happen this year.

    Also have someone for 2 wethers and that finished the list. But if the yearlings don't lamb, then it's a no go for both people.

    Kind of hoping they aren't bred so that I can stop worrying...lol.

    Latte and her girls went out today!
    The snowstorm didn't happen, so it was safe to let them out.

    Both girls are pending deposit. One is RR, other QR.
    One ram injured his leg, so his deposit was moved over to the other two lambs the same buyer was getting. And he'll be dinner sometime in autumn.
    Shearing is tomorrow! Everyone is miserable today.

    Ewenique is horribly obese, was far worse when I first got her. Same with Wooly Bully, but he's been sick the last couple days and has lost some lard.

    So tired....Next comes skirting all that wool, then pics and posting for sale.
    After that, CDTs for many lambs and being pulled for weaning, next week.
    Need to swap pastures for the ewes n rams. Boys have more green and don't need it.

    Raining yesterday and today, so don't have many wool pics. Second CDTs were scheduled for today, but catching slippery, fast lambs in rain n mud is not gonna happen! Hopefully it will be dry tomorrow.

    Was able to skirt and wash Tatiana's fleece yesterday before the rain came. Drying in the house now.
