August 2012

All those ewes that Wilson Pickett tupped lambed to the dates of the first tupping! How bizzare, but very pleasing. Even Grace had a lamb but not until July 4th, 12hrs after I decided she wasn’t pregnant and turned her in with the ewes and lambs. As she walked away from me I noticed her udder had developed but she wasn’t coming back. In total there were 41 lambs to 23 ewes – a lambing percentage of 178% – and already the first ram lambs are away to the butcher. It’s a sad day but I plan to register only 3 rams.
