    Ok so I know I said I was downsizing but I have a bunch of sheep who are basically sold and just waiting for AGM next month and I got a really good deal so meet the new guys.

    They're all 3/4 cotswold crosses. The big wether in the back is mixed with teeswater and the twin ram and ewe in the front are mixed with leicester longwool. I'm hoping to cut back on stupid goat shenanigans and replace them with longwool sheep so these guys are my test run. The teeswater came with the name George, which I was going to change because I already have George the guinea pig, but he's from Virginia and his ear tag is #1 so he can stay George Washington. The twins will probably be Eliza and Philip. So far they're super cute and the fleece is gorgeous but they came from some very hands off people and need some maintenance before they come out of quarantine.

    Tomorrow the cvms are getting blood drawn for pregnancy tests and I'm weaning the lambs that are getting sold at AGM. Someone asked me recently if summer was my easy time of year and I just laughed at them.

    Your lambs are so huggable and cute! Love them! haha! Selling some is always a reason and justification for buying more!! The new sheep are pretty too. Do you spin the wool?

    they are super cute... I was thinking about sheep but decided on oberhasli goats... katahdin were in the running for sure though... I love that someone thought summer time was the easy part of the year... pffttt winter is the closest slow time we have here lol
