Next day of pictures

More photo's from yesterday. On the left is Bella who is so far staying black. She is far more delicate than the boys that's for sure! She is also still a lot shyer but has finally started coming over for pets, I need to introduce the animal crackers as it almost time for halter training to take place and the first series of shots. On the right is her twin brother Yates who's really enjoying the grass right now thanks to all the rain we are getting. It looks like the white stripe on the top of his head is staying even though the others have faded is this krunet? It looks like he will go light grey although I can't tell yet.

Photo time

I took a few pictures today of everyone and here are some of them. I'd post more but I fell off my horse the other day and have a concussion so I don't feel great. Anyway everyone is growing up well.

These two boys are Yankee and Yippee. Yippee was named by one of my dialysis patients at work. Some of his white markings have faded but wow does he have the best horns. Yankee is also growing really nicely and is a very solid young ram. They are my terrible twosome.

Yosemite is still quite the looker and his horns are nice and widely spaced, still seeing how they grow. He is also the first of my lambs who I think is sold. Just hoping that travel plans work out for him as it sounds like a very good home.

Anyway for some reason blogger only likes me posting 2 pictures. So more tomorrow.

Some of the lesser known lambs

This is Ridgeway Bella one of the lambs I rarely manage to get pictures of as she is really the shyest of the bunch this year. I actually think she is going to stay black. She is very fine boned and square with a very good tail. She is for sale.

This is Ridgeway Yates he is the friendliest lamb of them all. I swear his white marking on his head looks like a mullet with sideburns. It's hard to get a good picture of him because he wants to sit in your lap and be cuddled. His horns are growing in nicely. Color wise he will turn a shade of grey, not sure what one yet. His fleece is really soft. He is also for sale.

That's all for today. Things are going well here. The weather is particularly hot and humid here but everyone is managing to stay semi cool at least. Last night we had thunderstorms so it is a little cooler....but not much. The fencing is still working well, I wish I had invested in it earlier.

Rainy day pictures

Well so far the permanet from Premier is working wonderfully and I hope it continues this way. It was very easy to install and a few of the sheep have been silly enough to get too close and have quickly moved away...yay sucess. 

Today even though it was raining I wanted to get some new pictures of the lambs as they are growing so fast. So here they all are.

This is Yosemite, the youngest of our lambs. He's growing so fast and has the longest legs I've ever seen. His coat is so soft and his little tiny horn buds are white. I can't wait to see how he grows up. He is for sale.

This is Yankee. He looks like he might go light grey like his mother. He'll at least be modified in some way. His horns are growing nicely and he's a very solid little guy. He is also for sale.

This Dreamer and his best friend Zebedee our wether. They get along well and I'm hoping Suncook fits right in with them. I know I said lamb pictures but the boys are so cute.

I'm having issues trying to post the others so I'll try again tomorrow. I also haven't forgotten about the MA sheep and wool show pictures that I promised.

Happy birthday Muppet!

So today is my PMU's birthday. He is turning 6 and everyone assures me this means he'll mellow lol (yeah right). I have had him since he was 8 months old and he's wonderful. Today we celebrated with a lesson from my trainer and we did some very good jumping (he's just getting started on that). She thinks we'll be ready to try some cross country jumps this year so woo hoo. Anyway here are some pictures taken in fall so everyone can admire him hee hee. I need to get some new ones.
