Lambing Update….

Texel lambs are the cutest, stockiest little lambs I think I’ve ever seen.  Growing up on a sheep farm my entire life I’ve seen a lot of cute lambs.

Ahh!

Itchy leg.

Lunch time.

One of the six ewes here to be bred by our rams and lambed out.  Isn’t she pretty!

The newest breed addition to our farm, twin Romanov ewe lambs.  These two are full Romanov and will be kept back for breeding on our farm.  Romanovs are known for their prolifacy, breeding out of season, being good foragers, and excellent parasite resistance (which we have already witnessed on our own farm).

That is it from our farm for the day!  Have a blessed Sunday.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
