This yearling ewe delivered her carbon copy of a ewe lamb
last evening. I didn't notice that she might possible be due
until two or three days ago and only because she had
started to udder up. She was a fairly thin ewe and I didn't have
the slightest idea that she was bred until a couple of days ago.
A side note: please excuse her terrible looking fleece,
she was roo-ed and then clipped were the fleece was not ready
to be roo-ed. She will be trimmed up one the fleece has had
time to grow out some.
This yearling is also another RR - scrapie resistant ewe.
So is Fergus, he is RR also.
So these two little ewes (half sisters through their Sire - Fergus).
Will both be RR - scrapie resistant ewes and they both
have tight curly wool, a good indication of a fine wooled sheep.
So as of now I still have one more ewe (my old girl) that is expecting.
I didn't pull Fergus out until after we sheared on March 9th.
So we could potentially have lambs through August 3rd...
I really, really, really hope not.
