I fed the sheep yesterday for the first time this winter. They have been out grazing the portion of the hay field that didn't get cut for hay last fall. They are all in good condition, ready to withstand our cold Saskatchewan winter.
This is our new cheviot ram Shrek. I decided to go with a bit of cheviot in the flock to add some vigor at birth. Some of the suffolk lambs are so dopey at birth that it can be a challenge getting them going. Cheviot lambs usually get up and suck on their own no matter how cold they are.
Larry the guardian llama eats with the sheep.
Happy New Year to all. May 2012 be healthy, happy and prosperous!!
