The adults are getting a rare feeding of grain today. Usually after winter and they go on pasture, the grain stops.So they were very happy to get some good stuff today. They still are all so fat and I don't know how to get the weight off. Things are starting to get done here and I feel like I'm making some head way. I have to put up a little chicken coop on one end of my sheep barn for when my chickens come. Right now they are being raised by Laura (Psalm 23 farms) until they are big enough so I hope I have a little bit of time yet. I can't wait to have fresh eggs and good chickens in the freezer.
I'm a small town,older than dirt lady,that thought instead of buying fleece I would just grow my own.Only thing I did wrong was to choose a breed that was bigger than me.I choose Lincoln and Romneys because I love the fleece and I love how shiny the Lincoln fleece is.My present goal is to learn how to get them on their buts to trim the hooves.The day will come hopefully.My long term goal is to cross breed and come up with a spinners delight of beautiful,long soft fleece with a shine.
