Constant Readers know that each spring, we shed lamb about 350 ewes. We raise our own bucks, Hampshire and Rambouillet, and their mothers lamb early, before the main lambing in May and June.This year, the lambs will start to come around April 1st. Lambing goes a lot better if the ewes are shorn ahead of time. A few days ago Rindy Harkness, proprietor, crew boss and shearer of Top Notch Shearing, showed up with her crew and turned out 380 sheep in six hours.
