Pictured: Lambs & Ewes eating breakfast


Hollow Hills Ranch

Sheep Adventures

We had the last of the lambs this last week with an old lady giving us beautiful twins!

1/15/23 – Evening

9 year old 50% Katahdin/50% St Croix ewe, Sprite – SUM 3001, had 7 and 8lb twin ewe lambs out of Registered St Croix Ram, Titus Swecker RVR 2102. Lambs are 75% St Croix, 25% Katahdin.

Current Stats:
21 lambs out of 12 ewes this year. Only 4 of those are ram lambs.
Purebred St Croix = 1 ram, 6 ewes
Crossbred = 3 rams, 11 ewes.

On Thursday, the 19th, all 13 yearling ewes got their annual shots for CD/T and BoSe. Wormed who needed it too. Rams are getting done another day!

Here’s some lamb and flock pictures from this morning:


Chicken News

Again we are still averaging 12-15 eggs per day. The Olive Eggers don’t seem to be doing too much and I can’t tell apart the brown egg layers too much except the Dominant Copper are really dark brown. I know the Light Brahma lay medium eggs and like to lay from October through May so I’m sure a few are from them. Sure glad we have them! Any money we make on eggs helps buy their food. It’s not a profit for us. We just enjoy having healthy, fresh eggs whenever we need them!

Crystal Caves Wise Woman

New Moon Crystal Grid & Guidance

The Crystal Grid:
Center is Rhodonite creating a positive feeling for yourself and Black Moonstone for helping to create a quiet mental space for you to turn your attention inward and determine what is most needed in your life. Surrounding these is Amethyst for help with change and transformation. The next circle has Sodalite for stability during divine transformation and Rainbow Moonstone to overcome negative thought patterns or self-limiting beliefs that may creep into your head. Next is Golden Tiger’s Eye for providing clarity during your intention setting ritual and Red Tiger’s Eye for stability much like Sodalite’s purpose. Finally the outermost Circle is Clear Quartz for mental clarity.
