It has been a long day today, but I am home and the 7 new ewes are eating fresh grass in the enclosure. All appears well. I got these sheep from a little farm just north of Guthrie Center. Of the 7, there are one 11 year-old barbados black sheep, three all black yearlings, one all black lamb, and three red lambs. I am a huge fan of the red sheep, the color in them is amazing. It is great to see what barbados black-bellied sheep can produce when crossed with some of the other hair sheep. Janice is on a cruise with her mother and grandparents, so she has the camera currently. I will get you pictures as soon as I can.
