got sheep?

this has now become the "view" standing on the west side of our barn... so ever since we moved here Tim has been making noises about getting a couple of sheep... he says honey i just bought TEN sheep... and now that they are here it looks like we have room for 20 more... lol I was told they would be the size of Storm. they are taller. (not sure the real breed name of these particular kind of sheep ~ I have never raised sheep before but supposedly the black faced ones are the same as what you find in the meat markets) so these are intended for the freezer... but, now he thinks we have girls and boys and he may want to keep some... (gotta find out if the boys were castrated first though... ) and i gotta make a note to buy that man red suspenders... e- i e- i Oh...

Welcome to the world of sheep!
Your breed is Suffolk.. They are popular at the County Fairs for show sheep in market classes.
Ours are Romeldale... A while face ewe.. awesome meat and wool...

We are bottle feeding 7 babies right now, out of the 250 ewes who are in the process of lambing...

Watch out for neighborhood dogs!

You are so baaaaaaad, Stacy.

I pass a sheep farm everyday to come to work. I love seeing the lambs every spring.

Are you planning to use the wool for knitting?

Congratulations!!!!
