Hi everyone. My wife and i are new to hobbyfarming. We started out last year with chickens and turkeys. We just recently adopted a lamb that is now 3 weeks old. His mother passed just after giving birth. He is a loveable little guy that thinks he is one of the dogs.

I have a question for everyone as I am preparing land for him. Is there a way to identify sheep laurel this time of year? Befote the leaves and flowers bloom? Our snow is just now melting and I know there is sheep laurel in my area. If theres a way to identify the bark on the plant it would help me insure it is removed from my land before he goes outside. I have searched online but have only found how to identify by the leaves and flowers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lukey says Hi.

Welcome to the forum from Texas. Glad to have you here. Congrats on the lamb, you are going to enjoy him. Will he be a pet? If so, you will want to have him castrated, they don’t call them rams for nothing.

I don’t know what Sheep laurel looks like. Sorry, no help there!

Welcome to BYH!

It’s great that you are getting into hobby farming! I started getting into hobby farming, and it turned into a homestead! Lol

Sorry about Lukey’s mother. I almost lost my doe Lucy as she had two big babies: a boy and a girl. The boy and the mom survived. Unfortunately, the little girl didn’t make it ;(.

Sorry I can’t be any help when sheep laurel! I don’t know much about sheep. All I can say is that Lukey is one adorable sheep! I’m sure he really appreciates you for taking him in and giving him a home!

Hope you enjoy BYH!
