Preparing for Next Year

Less then a month until our planned breeding season! Today we were able to get every one vaccinated, dewormed, moved to new pastures, and hoof trimmed. It feels wonderful.

I now only have 4 lambs to wean of their moms, follow up hoof trimming, and the second dose of Bo-Se to bucks before I begin to flush everyone. Meanwhile, I have a couple ewes and does that need to lose a few pounds first. :-) Also...it might be nice if I weaned my 6 month old ram lamb from the bottle before I start using him this year...

Thank goodness its cooled off! We have had two lovely overcast days now. Perfect for outside work and for pictures...
