Well it looks like our first lamb will be here in the next week or so hopefully so I figured I would start a lambing thread. After our worst winter yet were we lost 3 sheep in as many days and almost lost half the rest of the flock we are getting very nerves about lambing this year. I haven't got any resent picture of most of them as they are not looking their best but I am sure you guys don't mind as long as I add lamb photos at a later date. We breed predominantly purebred shetlands with the occational Cheviot cross Shetland and this year we will be having our first 3/4 Shetland 1/4 cheviot lamb.
So firstly let me introduce the dad of the lambs. Sadly we lost him to CCN at the end of January and he was only a baby making the lambs that bit more special. His name was Odin he was a black flecked ram lamb and one of the nicest sheep we have owned we had planned to show him this summer and were ever excited about his future sadly it was obviously not to be.
