@Mike CHS i dont ththink ill go with him. The distance is too far and the tam isnt worth it. I got back in contact with the woman we bought our flock from previously and have decided to look at some of her unrelated rams. We are currently breeding for color and for size and quick growth. We added romeo who has nice color and throws low birth weights but has very quick growning lambs that get bigger than he is. We want bigger sturdier lambs that grow quickly but arent too strenuous for the ewes to birth.

Sorry about your Dad selling the sheep. I am sure he has his reasons. Yes, we are up to a visit from you! Would love to have you. You might want to visit a little closer to home to start with, but if you want to bring yourself to Texas, come on!

I'm really sorry about the sheep. Is he getting out of animals entirely?

Texas is REALLY HOT right now!
We'll be gone (only DD2 here to take care of animals) taking DD1 back to school then a few days in PEI. The trip starts Aug 30, returning home Sept 7

Dad is now just doing grower lambs so buying them young and feeding them till they are big enough to go to auction. I may aim for later on this year in fall. I need to save up a bit more first

When ever you get here. I imagine it might take you awhile......LOL You could start close to home, swing down south and visit your way along.
