    FML!

    So Billy scaled the fence last night.....UGHHH :he:barnie:th:hit:rant:somad

    After panicking for 20min like a headless chicken, I figured out where to put Billy and how to beef up the fence in a way that he cannot scale it again. Will also electrify it.

    Kris & Michealis will be alone until the 23rd, then they will be split and put with their girls. That way, if any of their girls lamb from 2/15/2018 through 3/08/2018, I'll know they are Billy's and not Kris or Mich lambs. :fl

    Billy was separated and his scheduled girls put in with him. His breeding harness is on and Marshmallow was put in her coat. Tatiana is in with him as well.


    Also thinking of leaving the groups together until the end of December and moving the clean-up time.

    This year has been udder madness!

    It's only October 1st, it shouldn't be madness already! I'm not even putting CIDRs in until next week.

    Do you have any issues with lambing into the summer? My summer lambs really never do that well.

    Since Sebby needs a friend, I moved Lucia in with him and both are in the dogyard now until the season is over.
    They are both very needy boogers! Had to drop some feed to keep them out of the house, lol.
