2011 BFL Lamb Crop so far
We got a set of natural colored ewe lambs and a set of white ewe lambs and a set of white ram lambs. We still have one natural colored BFL yearling ewe left to lamb in April, so the fun isn't quite over yet. :-) Also have one 3 yr old natural colored BFL ewe that looks like she's open, but I'll wait until summer to see if she lambs late.
I'm very pleased with Ward Harwell's performance as the BFL flock sire this year. I hope all the lambs inherit his fine fluffy fleece.
We've had some nasty weather lately. The wind was awful on Tuesday and my pole barn's slider is frozen in place (see it in the photo above). I decided to block it with some small squares before the snow hit. Stan, bless his heart, tried to bring the bales over in back of the van and it just sunk down into the soaked ground - darn! The bales really helped to block the wind and a lot of the snow, but Wednesday morning snow covered the hay feeder and even the big round bales I have stored 20' inside the building.
