    I might have a home for one adult ewe and the rest of the 7 Babydoll ram lambs as wethers! Will be doing a trade for wood boards n posts.

    The mix ram might be turned into the dinner ram. Thought of keeping 72 for that instead, since he's the oldest, but he's kinda lean. His twin, 73, is a nice stocky fellow, with a super cute face and sweet personality. Wish he had sold as a breeder. Nope, cannot eat the nice one, no way!

    Pulled 84 for weaning, may be picked up this week.

    Piccolo's wee grey speck, found it in her washed fleece! Some of you may remember that I bought 2 woolly sheep and the ewe was bred. Lamb born had this tiny speck & since I kept her, I made sure to update about the speck.

    Patched 7 coats.
    Coated about 10 ewes.
    1 or 2 need smaller coats.
    Need to make 2-3 new small coats & 9 medium coats to finish coating the ewes.
    Then I need to make 4 medium coats and one small for the rams.
    I ran out of thread and fabric....but not before the machine started having serious tension issues. Stupid, complicated machines....
    Ordered more fabric and thread.

    Found a small spool of thread!
    Machine had a few more meltdowns, but I was able to finish 2 small coats and 1 medium.
    And I just realized that they all will need larger coats around October...lol. Near 30 more coats to make?
