UPDATE on the 3 fat ladies: THE THREE FAT LADIES: Update.....Today the T F L's came in for a feet trim,OMG how their hoof's have hardened up.It took all my strength to remove the excess horn from their time on soft country.But the good news is their "hips' are almost able to be felt with ease and now they can move around without any "discomfit" it won't be long before I will be able to feel the "short ribs"...On the way back to their paddock they even managed to break into a "trot" such was the lack of pressure on their ankles and knees.(sorry I forgot the camera,but in the coming days i will get an updated photo for those of you who are following their journey). T.O.R.

G'day folks, here are a few photos.First two are the Persians and the others are the 3 Fat lady's.

Exercise is working ,I can now detect their "ribs" ,short ribs and hips. One does look as thought she might be in lamb? Hopefully I can get a little more weight off of her before her time comes.

The others are the Persians/ Damara group all the lambs except 2 are ewes.Hope you all enjoy...T.O.R.

I love your spotty sheep! What eye candy! You have a nice lamb crop too. Is that a turn table I see for working the sheep? How do you like it?
Fat ladies. :love They are rather portly. :lol:

G'day folks, today is just the best "spring day",but for the last two days Nicole,Jenny and I have been tagging and marking lambs and due to "old age" is was time for a rest ,so this morning I made a choc cake instead (and a very fine result) for the next couple of days" Smoko".

I know you all love the photos so hare are a few from the last two days.

Bringing in the flock,these are one of three groups we have .Because meg is in season and Max has trouble keeping his mind on the job .The task fell to "old Ruby" and Tina the young pup,anyway the job got done and the lambs look a "treat"..

In the next post ,ewes and lambs and some interesting lambs.....

Hope you all enjoy ...T.O.R.

You certainly have been busy! That is a nice bunch of sheep. A chocolate cake sounds like a nice reward for all that hard work!

G'day folks ,as promised here are some more tales from the farm.After the rain quite a few of the ewes have cycled and in the improved conditions we are now getting quite a few twins. These are a sample.

The second lot are singles with a few from the Awassi mothers.The black and white ewe lamb taken from the rear would leave Kim Kardashian green with envy I'm sure .The brown and white ewe lamb is an update of a previous photo.In the photo of the two lambs the ram is on the left and the ewe is on the right...T.O.R.
