Almost time for fall romance

The purebred Hampshire ewes are down from their summer pasture on the Johnson Ranch in the Routt NAfational Forest. It is almost time for the bucks to join them so they can have baby lambs in After a few weeks of romancing the ladies, the bucks return to their bachelor ways.

Our Hampshire ewes and their lambs spend the summer on private land, the Johnson Place, in the middle of the Routt National Forest. In late September, we trail them back to the Home Ranch, so they can hang out with the guys for a few weeks. This year, Siobhan and Tiarnan trailed them 15 miles to the Bull Pasture on our good horses, Maria and Sarah.
