    As you can see, a few things have been changed about my breeding chart this year. And a few ewes were upgraded from just having singles, to having twins!
    I will not be breeding current year's lambs from now on. Though, this year's ram lamb, Krillin, will be used on 3 ewes who have had "spotted" lambs in the past to see if it is spotting or just an opps coloring.

    18 to 29 lambs possible in 2019.
    5 unrelated rams, 4 of which are dual registered.

    Sheep related. Lolla popped her tag out, found it while mowing today.
    The flexibility of the triangles allows them to pop through the ear hole without ripping the ear and not to get caught on something and rip the ear.

    Got one fenceline tight and tied.
    Most of a second, but need to move the end brace because mower cannot fit currently.
    Then half of a 3rd, but the mosquitoes got bad and I had to quit.

    Got most of a 4th row of fence done. Still need to finish the 3rd.
    Then pull the 5th's posts to move them over.

    Removed the fence mesh from the 5th row, but then it started raining. Haven't had time to remove and reinstall the posts yet.
    Mower ran out of gas, so need to get more, cut the grass when dry, so the fence can more easily go in.
