This part of California has had no rain for all of December, but 17 days of below freezing temperatures. I was so glad this baby was a good size single from older mama. I had a feeling Christmas night she was going to lamb, she wanted to stay out in the pasture when the rest of the sheep came in, I had to go out and get her to come on in. This little guy was checking out the hay first day. Need to keep a close eye on some of the other Dorpers to see if anyone else is ready to lamb.
I bred the Shetland Sheep later this year than last, hopefully there will be grass by the time they are ready to lamb. Angora goats are going to need to be watched closely since several of them are getting very rotund, hmmm, better get busy building / expanding / moving their pens.
Happy New Year to all.
