I’m a bit behind on posting. After our most recent camping trip (photos coming soon(ish)) I misplaced my camera while unpacking so I didn’t have access to any of the photos I took. Happily, I found my camera and I’m happy to finally introduce you to our sheep!
We found a local breeder of Coopworth sheep and decided to get 2 adult ewes and their lambs, a ewe and two ram lambs. Since I don’t need two, related, rams I’ve banded them so we’ll have two friendly wethers with fine coats of wool.
This is Wub-wub, mother to white ewe lamb, Ought.
And Ippi, mother to the two ram lambs, (white) Faba, and (black) Donka.
I’m counting down the days ’till we bring home our flock. We have found a breeder of Coopworth sheep, conveniently near us. Shearing day is soon, followed by lambing, and then, after the lambs are old enough to wean (around 60 days) we’ll be bringing our small flock home.
The farm was kind enough to have us all over to meet their sheep and answer our (many) questions. Struggling_along managed to snap some photos and carry Molly around while I got a bit more hands on with the ewes, and Ezra made fast friends with their dog.
