Introducing Einstein. I had made arrangements for a ram lamb, then this ram became available. I was impressed by his conformation. Einstein has a wide stance, strength, length and of good size.
Yes he is horned but his horns are well formed and away from his face. He is a bit shy but not wild. He is mild mannered, he is with the ewes with lambs -- I only have the 4 ewes- and he doesn't bother them. I watched him closely the week old twins come scurrying past and he just stands there. Color? My good friend Gail did further research, Einsten is Light Grey Yuglet, born 4-07 a triplet, bred by Bluff Country. Handsome Einstein has the agouti gray and spots.......it will be a colorful lamb crop next year.
Lily still hasn't lambed but her udder is quite full.........the more affectionate she becomes the closer I watch her.......she shouldn't be too far behind Bella
Tulla's fleece has already started to turn color from the agouti gene. Her brown looks very dusty
and so early She may end up with oatmeal colored fleece.
My barn yard as no shade other than in the barn, so I turned the flock out onto the pasture. I think the 5 acres will stay ahead of them. They are getting a bit of grain and their hay. The pasture offers shade and a chance to catch a breeze if they like.
