Free Ewes!!!!!!!

Wow, what a turn of luck for me!

Just got off the phone to a friend of mine who’s been kind enough to give me some tegs I’m exchange for a fridge, some wooden chairs and a children’s set of table and chairs, so I will have some lambs next year!! 32 more words


Blue the Ram

Well I went to see the blue texel shearling ram today and I’ve fallen in love!

He’s probably not the best specimen/example of the breed but he’ll only be with me for two seasons and the lambs will be going for slaughter so they don’t need to be the best put together things, just so long as they don’t come out with two heads and 5 legs anything goes! 30 more words

Next years goals

Next year I have several goals which I would like to accomplish.

1) start to breed boer goats. This is a beautiful breed of goat which meat doesn’t taste anything like the taste associated with such things as goats cheese or milk. 229 more words
