Look what followed us home.
Introducing Peaches (on the left)
and Betty (on the right).
They were born this past March
at Fruitcake Farm in Grafton, NH.
Candace is our only surviving 'original'
from Fruitcake Farm.
We are happy to have 2 more of their
sheep. And happy to help another former
shepherd with re-homing their lambs.
They will be in quarantine until Wednesday morning
just to get them used to us, and the the sheep on the
other side of the gate. Once the sheep on the right side
of the barn go back up the hill to the neighbors
(after breeding), and the other two rams go back in
with the Horned Dorset (their date for next year),
they will go into the lamb pen with the other four
lambs from this year, as well as the llama and alpaca.
Jeremy. Our Dorset/Romney ram.
He just came home from breeding in
New London this Saturday.
Below is his dad, Stormy.
Looking into the ram pen with Shea (Icelandic),
Arty (Icelandic/Romney), and Christopher.
Some of the ewes trying to figure out what is going on.
