Lambs on the Horizon

Rocky, our ram and the sire of the lambs due this spring.

Rocky, our ram and the sire of the lambs due this spring.

Last Friday, the barn had a visit from Dr. Hale of Hometown Veterinary Care in Fairfield. Our goal for the day was to ultrasound the Katahdin Ewes to determine whether or not they had been impregnated by Rocky the ram. The ladies were very patient while Dr. Hale poked and prodded with the ultrasound probe. It was pretty amazing to see the life growing inside of Blueberry, Snow, and Moxie! We saw lovely little heartbeats, squirming limbs, and xylaphone-esque rib cages on the fuzzy, black and white screen. These lambs are due on the ground in about two months so stay tuned!
