Breeding Season...

Here we are again, for us (because of 4-H) breeding season starts in about 2 weeks. Saturday is worming, CDT shots and begining of flushing for higher ovulation.
Rams go in on the 14th this year, and we will be expecting lambs begining around March the 15th.
I really hate winter, everything dies and looks so bleak and colorless. Northern Nevada only has two seasons; summer and winter. Its been no different this year.

The thing that keeps me going through winter is the prospect of lambs in March.

We have turned part of our garage into a nursery, so even in the coldest of March nights we will have some sembalence of warmth from at least the four walls even if it is drafty. There have been times when we were lambing at midnight in the snow and blow, or the rain, so this is a small improvment to our little farm.

Ahhh, the lambs!

Love your blog! Very interesting. :) I found a link to it on a post in the Spin-Sales group. I'm looking forward to reading more about your sheep.
