I took my 5 ewe lambs to the neighbours yesterday and one of my 2 year old year rams heading for our freezer to another neighbour to live with her and her flock of 6 ladies....it was so sad to see them all go but NONE of them are for the freezer so that has to be good :)

They all went onto the trailer without too much effort too, which made the 5 min trip up and down the road a lot easier for all of us...there is a lot to be said for the your animlas trusing you and just doing as you want them too :) Dolly was very sad to see her twin girls disapear...she was not happy at all..the others didnt really care much at all.

So now i have 4 males for the freezer my ram Ton jones and Frank my 3 year old wether along with my 13 ewes for breeding :) A much easier number to keep a track of.

Bring on lambing in July .......oh how soon we forget how hard that time of year is .....

oh boy - that is hard, and that'd be too tough for me, i'm too soft. i'd never make a real farmer.
