What a deal and a great opportunity for you. I bet those sheep are glad to be on your farm, grass, cooling shade trees, what a difference! And already dropping lambs! Plus you found a market for wethers, that was a good contact to make. :clap

WHAT?? Exciting news for the farm, then you leave us hanging? Your first Awassi lamb! Pictures!

haha, got a funny. I let the sheep out to graze our yard this afternoon. This evening I went to put them up and saw a funny shape under the trailer. We have a dump trailer that Trip, our Great Pyrenees has dug deep holes under and he lies under the trailer in the heat of the day. I call it Trip's Office. I looked again, and a sheep was laying in the hole under the trailer!

G'day folks,this post is not the new news you were expecting.

Last Saturday I was carried by ambulance to the capital hosp for emergency surgery on one of my kidneys.After a successful operation i was sent home only to be told that i will require two more surgery's in the next two months .

So the new pic's will have to wait as i am under strict instructions from doctor (and Jenny) that i "must " take it easy so the inflamed nature of the kidney can calm down and undertake a level of repair.

Currently we have gale and cold conditions ,but all the sheep are in "safe" paddocks with adequate tree cover and from what we can observe all the lambs are doing OK.

I hope we can get some pic's of the new lambs in the next week or so,because so far all is good with my recovery and i am taking "no" painkillers and have very little pain from the surgery.Saw my doc today,he is satisfied that i am progressing well and should recover given adequate rest and not exerting my self unduly.

I will post updates as they come to hand......T.O.R.

That had to be scary! I am glad the surgery repaired what was wrong or at least got the process started, as you have two more to go. Do what the doctor says, you don’t want to mess up his work by lifting or doing something stupid. Is there anyone that can help you and Jenny? I will pray for a speedy recovery for you.
