In like a lamb…and a cow

15 Mar

Hampshire ewe with twins

Spring is almost sprung.  We have new lambs on the ground.  We raise our own Rambouillet and Hampshire rams which we breed to our commercial ewes, so these babies are born earlier in the year than the lambs from the range sheep.  We shed lamb at Powder Flat, so here are some photos.  It seems to be a good year for twins and triplets, God bless ’em!

Our cows spent the winter in Laramie, Wyoming, eating hay on the windy plains.  We recently brought them home to eat our own hay until the green grass comes.  I expected them to fall over after leaving that windy country.
