Sheep Adventures – More Babies!

This week has been busy!! We now have 15 babies running about and only 3 of those are ram lambs!

12/30/22 – early AM

6 year old, Registered St Croix ewe, Flora – HHR 992, had twins! 9lb ram and 7lb ewe. Sire is Registered St Croix Ram, Titus – Swecker RVR 2102. Nice babies, awesome mom!

12/31/22 – morning

First timer, 2 year old, Commercial Recorded 50% Katahdin ewe, Mouse – HLW 1009, had twin ewe lambs! 8 and 9 lbs. Sire is Registered St Croix Ram, Titus – Swecker RVR 2102. Lambs are 50% Katahdin/50% St Croix. She’s a bit nervous so there might be some holding her for the lambs to nurse but she’ll probably settle down.

This is a very resigned first timer. We had to have a discussion to let the lamb nurse after some barn confusion this morning. Dam is an almost 2 year old, Registered St Croix Ewe, Yarrow – Swecker RVR 2105, and sire is Registered St Croix Ram, Titus – Swecker RVR 2102. Ewe lamb is 8lbs.
