Hope everyone is well.
We are doing good here, just attempting to survive the black flies. The are horrible :( and are driving the sheep crazy! fly spray doesn't seem to be working very well for them, or us humans lol.
Gardens are almost all planted, cant wait for some fresh tomatoes. We decided in July we are going to head to the North East youth sheep show, we have heard that it is a wonderful event for the kids,
where they can learn a lot. Im very impressed with our ram lamb, he has been wonderful to handle so far, very polite and willing to do what you ask. Which for me is a very good sign, that's exactly the personality that I want in a ram. I don't want to breed some crazy personality in to my ewes that are so sweet and easy going. I cant wait for lambing next year :fl

Glad that you have such a calm and gentle ram. We drove to Tennessee to buy Ringo from Mike CHS just for that reason. We have small grand daughters, the youngest, 2 years, is sheep crazy and loves to go pet them.

You will have to take lots of pictures at the sheep show and post them!

Thanks!, Im hoping he stays calm. His Sire from what Im told was a pretty good boy. So hopefully he will be as well. Me and my husband work with him every day, teaching him how to stand, be brushed, washed and we walk him up hills and over obstacles to help build his muscles and keep him in shape and looking good for the shows. We are going to attempt to go to the Big E in September. Im so excited to see so many other sheep people there. I have never actually been, only watched the show online so I can't wait! Im so happy that my kids enjoy this, and that it is something we can enjoy together.
