    Ewenique had R/E twins, RR, can be NABSSAR registered, sired by Billy.

    Kind of wish Billy was dual reg, really need two RR ewes for the Cali swap...

    Not liking the new tail docker. It doesn't stop blood like it should and tends to peel off skin from the tail. Ugh.
    I guess I should of invested in the hot docker and gotten over having to haul lambs to the house to use it.

    Marley just had twin R/E lambs! 11:45AM. Sire is Michaelis, can be dual registered and codon needs testing. If the ewe is RR, she'll be up for the Cali trade.

    Juliana had a ram lamb!
    Not sure if she's done or not yet, got them moved into the barn.
    Sire is Billy, codon RR, can be NABSSAR registered.
    And this lambing marks the end of Billy lambs! Rest will be sired by Sebastian, WoolyBully & Michaelis.

    Tail size seems to have something to do with it sucking. Large lambs had most issues.
    Did the 3 newest lambs yesterday w/o issue, all tiny, thin tails.



    I think that I'm going to sell the breeding harnesses & crayons. Almost no ewe lambed near their due date. Some going 3wks now, lol. Just doesn't seem worth the stress of catching rams to deal with it.
    Need to sell the ram shields, from a couple years back, too.
