Dad got a few ewes from hus Uncle Gene years ago for a farm Flock after Gene hae had his own sheep company. He was partnered with Covey, Bagley , Datyon out of Ckeville Wyoming, that out fit ran tens of thousands of ewes. Well thier ram flock in te summer was bigger then alot of sheep out have ewes today.

Thanks for all your photos Jody. You have grass and water, that Meadow Foxtail will be lapping it up as long as it doesn't stay to long. Won't be nice to cut when it's lodged but your crop should be good.

Lambs look really good. Coyote got one of ours yesterday morning. Penned the sheep overnight and the .204 caught the poor little morning housewife while she was shopping this morning. :wink: Now we'll see if the single father is a shopper or a deadbeat dad.

One thing you mentioned about your cows, did you keep some govt. grass?

Shootings, theft and family issues. All the same societal problem we have in more densely populated areas. :? :shock:

Jodywy, how are the wool prices over there? the commercials hardly cover the cost of shearing here, the rare breeds make a margin because of the premium paid by hobby spinners.
If I keep any for myself again, I am goin toward Easycare or Dorper breeds.
