Hopefully the ram is doing his job. The whole flock is lambs, so we shall see what the spring brings. We turned him loose in mid-October and so are hoping for late March early April lambs. I have raised sheep before, but never this breed. Most of the flock are Shetlands, a hardy multi-purpose breed descending from ancient short-tailed flocks. Their wool is multi-colored and ranges from very fine to rather coarse. I can't decide if I will put up the official breed description on another page, or not, but that brief description will have to suffice for the moment. That's all for now.
