    And chart if all NABSSAR ewes magically sell.

    I just caught wind of something interesting.

    "...do you know if your NABSSAR ewes can trace lineage to OEBS registry? they will make papers. It costs $20."

    :barnie:th:fl:he:caf

    Okay. I emailed and am impatiently waiting for a reply.
    If this is true, I'm about to be poor again. :oops: :fl:fl

    If this is true, 7 ewes and Billy should be able to get their OE CoRs!

    ITS TRUE!!!
    I'm beyond excited!
    The sheep I've already made deals on, I'll go through with selling, but rest that have OE parents or grands are on hold until I find out if they get their papers or not.
    Super excited for my Billy! :love

    Got the copies and check in the mail. :pop
    Made a new breeding chart to only reflect if these 8 sheep get OE registration. If the NABs sell, I'll have to redo the chart altogether & with more consideration, lol.

    I wonder how long it will take...

    How exciting for you!

    By the way, you find the coolest, neatest toys (referring to the height gizmo).

    Got 3 used gates. Used them to keep the horrendously destructive sheep away.

    Swapped the small gate for a larger one I had so that I can lock ponies up by the barn.

    Little gate will go near where pictured.
