I just can't believe how fast 8 weeks have gone by. Just look at the size of them! The big one is one of Belle's boys, he's huge. Belle will retire from breeding this year and enjoy her retirement. She has started a beautiful line that will forever have our farm linked to her line.
Today was the lambs big day, they got their last CD & T shots, were wormed and then it was time for them to get ready to go off to their new homes. We are keeping one of Rose's ewes, but deciding was so hard. We settled on the smaller one, she's always had my eye since she was born.
They were fitted with harnesses and loaded into the back of "Grandma Liz's" SUV for their trip up to her house to spend the night and then off to their new homes in the morning...
and yes it breaks my heart to see them go, I would keep them all, but we breed them to help put our mark on bringing back this rare and once endangered breed, the Olde English "Babydoll" Southdown sheep.
