Update and Slight Change in Plans
Neville's group is still in the front pasture...hopefully not being blown away by our windy weather.
Twin Springs Cotton Candy - flock matriarch...my first Shetland.
Her triplet daughters Mapleton Peanut Brittle and Mapleton Carmel Apple.
Well I let the ewe lambs and goats out the other day on a day that was really nice and Sky and Hope were over at the ram lambs fence wagging their tails and making them crazy. So in a split minute decision I gave Can Too Sky and Mapleton Storm, and Mapleton Hope and Spring Hills Patches a place of their own.
Stormy and Sky in the vacated pig tractor.
Patches and Hope in the vacant hoop house.
I just couldn't let those cute little spotted faced boys sit this one out after all. I also like knowing my yearling rams are proven, it gives me more confidence in my breeding groups. Well that is my rationalization anyhow.
I think I will let Patches be "clean up" ram for all the breeding groups in a couple of weeks. Champ and Neville's groups are still together for a few more days.
