Breeding Groups

We have set up four breeding groups this year.  This is our Moorit ram, Clyde S31453
We have paired him up with Sparkle (moorit), an English Leister and Constance (mioget).
I'm happy with his horns, they are wide and clearing his head.  He has a really good temperment too.

Mercury W00735 on the left, is owned by Dave Lewis of Wee Middlebranch Farm.  We are sharing our rams with both of our flocks.  This works out well as Dave is lamb sitting my little girls for the next 35 days at his place, while I have all the adults over to my place to visit with the rams.
Mercury is polled, he has scurs, next is Autum (moorit) then Cosmos (blk & wht) and Fiona (light moorit).  Two other girls were not being photogenic this afternoon, Claire (grey) & Lialac (grey/white).

My computer is not cooperating to load the rest of my pics.  I will need to try tomorrow.

Catching up....

It has been awhile since my last post.  The festivals are over for now,  we had great weather for each one this year and of course I wish I had taken my camera to get some photos......I will try next year.
Today has been a busy one as we have set up breeding groups.  We have sixteen ewes paired up between four rams.  I will try and get some pics. tomorrow to post.

It has also been a time to stock up....on hay in the barn and prepare for winter.  I can feel it in the air. 
WINTER, not really ready for this yet.:(
Time change coming soon, that is a real bummer.  Leave in the morning, when it is dark and not long after you get home in the late afternoon it is dark.
