Just like last year . . . my beloved, Pumpkin was the first of our girls to give birth. This morning when Mark and I went out to do chores she had taken over one of our connecting stalls and was protecting the most beautiful set of twins. One ram lamb with beautiful coloring and huge dual colored horn buds (weighed nearly 8 pounds) and a more petite (six pound) solid Moorit ewe lamb.
I have decided to keep the ewe lamb but the ram lamb is gorgeous and would be suitable for breeding stock . . .he is available for sale ($500 registered, 400 non-registered).
All of Pumpkin's lambs are incredibly healthy. Lenny is Pumpkin's grandson so you can see the breeding behind this boy. He has many leader lines in his lineage. Notice how he is checking out the Turkey's in the second photo. He is going to be one smart boy.
Buy local . . . . . Eat well . . . . .
