I forgot to take pictures...
Confirmed that their wool is much different than ours, visually, I could tell that.
They cannot import from anywhere, so they are breeding "backwards" from their Southdown to get to Babydolls. To get black, they are mixing with other breeds.
Oh, and I found out that their Southdown has been bred to have a nude udder!!
I was super jealous about that!

In order of nose rubs-
Billy, Sebastian, back to Billy, then Oreo, Patchie(ewe), Oreo, Billy, Sebastian, Krillin.
Kneeled down & Sebastian comes up, then mutt ramling & then Oreo & last Sebastian again.

Please don't call me...
Unless you want to buy Cottonballs!
Then, for the love of all things, leave a detailed voicemail or a voicemail in general!
You know how many people don't leave a message & expect me to just answer at the ring or call back? No. Or leave a message that is super vague & I have no idea what they're calling about? Goodness...
Just text or email. Lol

Since I'll be erecting a separate horse shelter & eventually a separate hay barn as well, the planned barn lean-to maternity ward is being scrapped!

1st pic, current fence. Blue shows where it'll be trimmed down & grey where gates will be moved to.

2nd pic, original plan. Red curve with blue shows where the fence currently is with gates & the yellow is where the lean-to was gonna go.

This is a project I'll be able to knock out in an hour or so this week.

Been seeing lots of breeding & interest of the ewelings. So, we may have May lambs.

I just realized that I haven't selected a name theme for this year yet. o_O

Pokemon?
First generation, the good ol' originals.
Maybe, idk what else I was considering...

Let's assume, for now, that Pokemon are the ones to choose from.
The numbers are their poki number.
I chose ones that would make good sheep names. There's tons to pick from...I need to narrow this list down, as 72 is excessive...
Will be trimming down this list.

Okay, down to a manageable 54!
