So excited!
We put the deposits down today for the new ewe's we are getting, 2 Corridales. And the Ram comes on the 8th, he's a Columbia. We are awaiting delivery of the Columbia ewes, on the 20th!!
I'm going to cross the Corridales with the Columbia ram, and obviously use him to cover the Columbia ewe's.
On the wait list for a Rambouillet ram, maybe next year....they sure are hard to get a hold of out here...:hair

Why yes. Not registered, but nice sheep. Nice fleeces especially. Some are a little wild, but the lambs I've raised are the sweetest creatures on the planet. Big too. High parasite tolerance, grass only animals here.

ETA: will snap more pics this afternoon :)

Lexie, we need to talk.:grin:
As my DD is still just outside of San Antonio, it's not like I don't have an excuse to take a road trip.....

Two of my spring wethers (far left and front) with their midget mama (middle). Dear sweet Martha, bless her tiny heart, will be here for life. She raises her babies just fine, has no trouble delivering tiny twins and growing them up!

The wethers from above. Grass only, mama raised. They're gonna be tasty!

Mr Washington himself, with two members of his harem, both two year olds bred for the first time this season. Due Jan (I think). Please ignore the wool everywhere, I didn't clean it up well after shearing :p.

More two year old maiden ewes. These girls come from nice lines, and are beautiful, feminine examples of the breed. Gorgeous fleeces, pretty heads... Just nice nice girls.
