Duelling Rams

It's always a bit testy when one group of rams is introduced to another. We put the two yearling rams in with the older rams today. Neither leader wanted to give up his position. I expect when Jango grows up, he'll be a contender for leader.

Now that that's settled. All are best of friends. Drogon has a bit of a
skinned head, but Jango showed no ill effects.

2014 Lambs for Sale

All our early lambed ewes were bred to Xact. Lambing began March 6th and only ran for one cycle. All the rest of our BFL ewes that didn't catch in the first cycle were bred either Charolais or Canadian Arcott to lamb the first week in May.

Our early lambs are now weaned, separated from the main flock and pictures taken

It takes a while to load the pedigrees, so please be patient.
