Having Lambs on Pasture… — 8 Comments

  1. Hi Jamie –
    Are you still breeding Hog Island’s?
    Would you like two 3 yr old ewes? I no longer breed and the two girls were returned to me via a divorce. They really should be helping sustain the breed.
    Let me know if you would like them. We are an hour from the VA line in NC.

    • I’ve emailed you. We’re willing to take them and if they don’t end up working with our flock, we’ll move them along to the Adams up in Spottsylvania.

    • Sometimes first time momma’s just don’t know what’s going on. Sometimes if they have a difficult delivery or a lot of pain afterwards, they don’t want to be touched or messed with and just try to “get away” from the little one. Sometimes if they have twins they’ll get so busy with one that they’ll “forget” the other one is theirs (if this happens, they usually get attached to the last one born).

      And I think sometimes they’re just…well…dumb. But I don’t like to think that way! 🙂

  2. Love getting a glimpse into your family life! It is so sad that the momma didn’t want her little one around. So glad that he was able to nurse though!
