Wishing all of our friends and customers in the Katahdin a very merry Christmas and the happiest of New Year's!
If you want to see how our lambing is progressing, check us out on our Facebook page.
We are looking forward to bringing this fellow home. We've purchased him from Mish Katahdins. He is out of one of their recent imports and brings completely lines to our flock. I really like his length and substance. We are looking forward to seeing what he produces for us!
Went out and took a few pictures of the boys today. We weaned last Thursday. The boys are gaining well, with the best of them weighing 80 pounds at 60 days.
After two incredibly dry years we are finally getting "normal" weather. Our grass is going nuts. It's a nice problem to have for a change! The ewes and lambs are doing great. Weaning happens this weekend.
Lambing has started! A set of twins last night (one of each) and then another set this afternoon (one of each again). The lambs are a good size (last night's were both 13 pounds) and vigorous. Looking forward to the next few weeks!
The rams actually went in on October 30th, but the sun is finally shining and things are drying up, so I thought I'd go out with the camera and take some pictures today. I managed to get this nice picture of Jerome JDS23B...before my battery died. Sure love the length on this boy. He's being bred to two groups of purchased ewe lambs this fall. I'll try and get out and get some more shots of the other ram we are using - a new ram lamb from Lynette Kreddig of Franklyn Farms. Very much looking forward to next year's lamb crop.
