Farm Update

Lambs are growing . . . we had a 90% rate of ram lamb births this spring . . .So I don't have any breeding stock for sale . . . we had two rams reserved from last year and those are sold . . . our meat market is greater than what we have which is good . . . I am keeping most of my ewes from this crop because they are so outstanding.

Unfortunately, Hun will be going to the butcher this summer.  His lambs are HUGE . . . but they killed one of our ewes this spring . . . Icelandics do not normally produce 13 lb lambs and this caused birthing problems with a few of his ewes . . . I won't go into it but his huge shoulders and head are a big problem.  Sorry Hun . . . you are just too big.

Mark and I have been involved with the Ron Paul Campaign over the past several months . . . . we are both delegates to the Convention in Tampa . . . I am an alternate . . . Mark was elected as Maine RNC Committeeman Elect . . . and will be seated in Tampa after the Convention . . . he is probably one of the first National RNC Committeman who is a farmer and shears his own sheep in a very, very long time.

More updates soon . . . . promise . . . first tomatoes from the greenhouse, basil now  . . . two weeks we should have cukes and peppers . . . eggplants soon to follow.
