November saw the arrival of 10 ewe lambs. I decided to try a more commercial type of sheep to run along side the Jacobs. These girls are woolshedders, they still grow a fleece for the winter but will shed it in the spring when the weather improves. They come from a flock that selects for easier management, so hopefully they will do well by me. They will have to wait until next autumn to go to Rameses though.
Looks like Rameses has done his job and has marked all the jacob ewes. Hopefully they will takes and we can look forward to a healthy crop of lambs in April. He is turning out to be a well mannered and easy to handle ram, let's hope his offspring turn out well.
