Lambs on feed–and the livin’ is easy…

23 Nov

Last month, we loaded almost all of our lambs onto trucks and sent them to a feedlot in Pine Bluffs, Wyoming.  It is time for the ewes to be lamb-free for a couple of months so that they will be ready for the winter months, and their future liasons with bucks. One might think that the ewes are doing most of the work here, and one would be correct. The job of the lambs is to put on some pounds. Here they are, eating a high-carb diet and having their every need attended to. We went to see them the other day, and I think they were glad to see us.
