Yearlings were moved out last week. Last night, moved in Kibito & Seadra. They felt thin through all of that fluff. Can't see it like you can with shorter, dense wool.

Bent the bottoms of the wire holes in feeder. Same ewes getting stuck, still. Going to cut their wool next time I catch them stuck instead of simply plucking them free. 🙄

Swept it up & left it a bit longer to make them clean it up better.

Getting eight 850-900# rounds this time.

4th bad bale. Left it for them to pick through all day, then added new bales at dusk.
Still no lambs.
New bales Sunday! Eight 850-900# rounds are coming. Not sure how I'll feed it. Probably peel a lot onto a tarp & drag it to the feeder.

Ewenique, Kibito, Seadra & Patchie. 3× extra meals + free fed hay.

Lapras, had a black ram, sire Magnemite, codon needs testing, around 9:30AM. He is from my head mark line & has a faint one. He also has white around the butt, I'll have to ask the color gurus what that means.

And around 3:35PM, Holly had her first lamb. Then the 2nd. Spotted rams by Oreo. Codon needs testing.
