I know this thread is kinda old, but I'm thinking about getting some Jacob sheep and was just drooling over your babies. So cute!
Jacobs are great! I'm always happy to answer spotty sheep questions if you have any. The breed club is also super friendly and supportive.
Here's all the lambs that I had left at 6 months. All my ewe lambs sold except the 4 I'm keeping back and I've got a bunch of ram lambs some of which are leaving soon and some are being grown out for either spring meat sales or to be sold as yearlings with nice big horns.
Holly, ewe lamb, staying
Apollo, ram lamb, had a home lined up but there was some drama and now he's available again
Rosette, ewe lamb, sold
Pacific, lilac ram lamb, keeping
Carolina, ewe lamb, sold
Jester, ram lamb, growing out
Duchess, ewe lamb, sold
Kent, ram lamb, growing out
Spartan, ram lamb, growing out
Admiral, ram lamb, sold
Keepsake, ewe lamb, keeping
Rival, ram lamb, sold
Monarch, ram lamb, growing out hopefully finds a breeding home because he's really nice
Rubens, ram lamb, growing out
Dulcet, ewe lamb, keeping
Irish, ram lamb going to his new home with a starter flock of adult ewes this weekend
Jubilee, ewe lamb, keeping
Also I added yet another spotty creature to the farm, an australian cattle dog puppy! I got her at 4.5 months and she's 6 months now. We went to a herding trainer for some foundation tips but she's got a lot of maturing to do before she can actually help out. Her name is Scout and she came all the way from Oklahoma.
Breeding starts on the 12th for next year's batch of lambs. I've got a few people who want starter flocks next year so hopefully I have a lot of nice girls!
