Sorry that I haven't done this sooner, it's been crazy for me this summer. I know these aren't very good and I'll try and get new ones soon. I just found these on my phone ;)

As you can see, the girls are in a smaller pen then I would like. I made the mistake of not banding my ram lambs and they decided to mature faster on me then I thought they would (at one 5 months!!) So I had to put the ewes in the smaller ram pen and the put Daddy in the big pen with his sons.:barnie Everyone is losing their nuts next year ;) I will say though, that after getting Chewy (my ram) out on the longer grass he sure did BEEF OUT!! I think he gained over 50lbs!! :ep

Yes, they are very plump! I'm excited to see how much meat I get off them.

Here's more pictures!! I realized half way thought that my camera lens was dirty :rolleyes:
No body likes to sit still for their pictures either, all they want to do is be pet, lol. Tippy doesn't like when the ram lambs come by my anymore, he will make noises at them and headbutt them away. What a sweet body guard! :D

I think my ewes are in heat now too, Chewy won't leave there fence and keeps pawing at it and making his ram-y purring noises. ;) I think those purrs are really sweet sounding. About another month and then they can all have their fun ;):gig

Your sheep look really good! We cut our ram lambs at 2 weeks old. It was our first lambs and a friend helped with the de-nutting process. Your ram lambs are strapping big and healthy!

We tasted our first lamb from our flock on Sunday and it was fabulous. Ours are Katahdin/Dorper crosses.
