The good thing with getting all the wool off is that I can see the ewes udders more clearly now. I suspect Gretchen will lamb first. Her bag is getting very full and she looks like she is starting to drop a bit. I'm so excited to see what colors I will get. I'm hopping for a spotted ewe out of Faith. And of course it would be nice to have another Moorit Badgerface ewe out of Gretchen.
I'd like to get a Black Badgerface, so that is on my ewe list for this year as I'm fairly sure I will not get one out of Heather.
Now to skirt those Spring fleeces... I'll be spending quite a bit of time picking hay and straw out of them.
Oh and one more thing I am excited about - I put a deposit down on a rat terrier puppy. I have first pick from 5 males!! I couldn't have asked for prettier pups and with so many to chose from. It will be hard! Here are pics from the breeder site for Karma/Indy pups: http://imageevent.com/ramirezratz/availablepuppies;jsessionid=oa52ev0291.penguin_s
I'm interested in the Chocolate/Tan/White male and the Black and White Male, but personality will be my deciding factor before color.
I'll keep you posted as the lambs arrive; hopefully within the next two weeks.
