Another week, another paddock.

Heard coyotes last night...Now I don't want to put the ewes and keeper ewelings out on the 20 acres like I did last year...
Which makes me want to keep the smaller paddocks and add even more of them! 😖

I like the speckled rambling...sorta appy looking😁in horse talk.

That's a huge place your working...how many acres? Waaay more than I want to deal with from just pics. Of course, with sheep numbers, you need plenty of graze.

Some people do call that color appy. I forgot what I planned on calling it...lol.
Muddled...merle...idk, I almost had it...speckled? Ugh, this will bother me all day...
Others are light(tiny amount on head and elsewhere), medium(tuxedo style) and heavy(cowbaby/magnemite) spotted/spotting.

Almost 5 by house, then big area is 24-26~. But only about 22-24 total useable acres in all. Rest is a pond, 2 creeks, land past the creeks(one is open flood area I can't get to, other is woods) and such.

I wonder if I'll end up just making tons of paddocks one day...=/

34 Babydoll ewes, 6 Babydoll rams, 3 mutt ewes & IDK if I'll keep 2 mutt lambs this year or sell them. 43-45 sheep... :th
wow, thats...too many! Sold 3 adult ewes and 2 adult rams this spring, but that hardly put a dent in it! Selling 2 rams next spring, but need to buy/keep a new black or white ram, as well. And keeping several ewelings again, from the 2 rams I'll sell. Gonna be 50+ sheep next summer...holy cow...

Yeah, I didn't realize how many I have... :hide
