Well, its been a lot of hard work, a fair amount of cash, and a lot of planning, but we're officially sheep owners! Meet our sheep:
Patty, a 3 month old CVM ewe:
Fred, a 6 year old CVM ram (prior to shearing, which will be another post this week):
The rest of the "girls" Marjorie, Shirley, Florence, and Eliza:
Eliza, the chocolate brown (black in the sheep world) 75% CVM, 25% Corriedale ewe with one of the other girls:
Apart from Eliza, the other girls are all pure CVMs (and actually Eliza will be registered as CVM since she's 75%), they are all about 3 months old, born this past March.
So far, they're getting along just fine with the goats. Mr. Drama Llama wasn't too thrilled when we first put them in there, but he's doing fine with them today.
OH! There are many more pics on Flickr...click on any of these pics to be taken there, or to enlarge the picture to see greater detail.
We already sheared Fred (and the llama) since it's gettting hot here they really needed a summer trim. I'll continue posting pictures of them, and our microfarm adventure!
Thank-you Nate, I love you. :)
