The leaves are changing here at Ridgeway Farm, which means breeding season is upon us. On Saturday I put all of the sheep in their groups. The weather was horrible, so there weren't many picture opportunities.
Group 1 is Dreamer with Amelia. She had 2 lovely black lambs last year and was a wonderful mom.
Group 2 is Sunny with Sabrina, Gypsy and Cammie. Sunny has more because I loved the lambs from Sabrina and Gyspy with him last year, and breeding Cammie to him just makes good sense.
I'm very excited to see what lambs are produced this year. Last year we had a wonderful group of lambs, and so my hopes are high.
Jewel says "I seem to have been overlooked."
Yes, Jewel has a year off (I hope lol) and so is playing baby sitter to Jaqui
and Daisy Mae. Neither one is old enough to breed this year. Daisy Mae has gained 17% of her body weight in 7 weeks and is doing great, as you can see she is a bit of a loner.
Here's wishing all of my sheepy friends a successful breeding season :)
