Herd Reduction and Increase

Triska and her lamb moved to a new home in New York over the weekend, while our ram, Piper, went to North Carolina.  Giselle and her twin rams will be available after weaning at the beginning of June.  Symphony had twins last week, one ram lamb and one ewe lamb so this year we had 60% rams, 40% ewes.   Symphony's ram is too cute with his one pinto colored ear.

With the Netherland Dwarf bunnies, it's been a surfeit of bucks!   But that's another blog. (Which I really need to get moving on!)

Hope everyone else had a smooth lambing season.  

Shearing is scheduled for April 7th.   The following week I'll be skirting the fleeces and posting them for sale on the website.




  1. These are absolutely adorable. I could eat them up. Oh, I guess literally too! Ken

  2. Yup, roast lamb is yummy, especially when grass fed/pasture raised and lightly grain finished. These twins will probably stay as breeding stock though we do sell lambs for meat too.
