2008 Lambs

We planned lambing much better this year. All were born within two weeks and the temperature was on the rise.

 

March 23, 2008 – Easter Sunday found Rosemary delivering a white ram and white ewe. The ram was big and needed a little pulling to come out. Cowlyn is their sire. Ram sold to Nancy in KS; Ewe sold to Caryn in MO


March 25, 2008 Ellie gave birth to triplet ewes at 1:30PM. Two had CVM pattern and one white. These girls are all big and grew quickly. Cowlyn is their sire. Ram sold to Dave in Grinnell, IA


March 26, 2008 Gretchen gave birth to a white ewe at about 10:30AM whom we called “Pinky” due to her all pink nose. Pinky was large and it was Gretchen’s first lamb, but she had no problem. Pinky had just dropped to the ground when I checked on her. Sired by Clayton. Sold to Dave in Grinnell, IA
