Lambies at Last!

We finally started lambing last week.  It’s been a leisurely pace so far but a quick scan of bellies and udders today leads me to believe life is going to get much more hectic very soon…

Eight ewes have lambed so far with a total of 15 lambs.  Mostly Churros so far - I think the Jacob ewes are holding out for a better offer.  I’ve posted some of the lamb photos below.  For now they’re just cute lambs.  We’ll be evaluating them for breed quality characteristics when they’re a bit older…

Easy Keeper

Talk about an easy keeper!  He doesn’t eat, poop, ram things or wander off looking for girls.  Meet Capone II…P1010003

Jesse Leavitt of Willamina, Oregon, a fellow vendor at the McMinnville Public Market, carved him for us using a photo we provided of Maverick Capone, one of our past Jacob flock sires…

Capone II has been guarding our booth at the market.  He’s a favorite with kids and dogs…P1010004 


Here he’s pretending to be a Churro…

Thanks again Jesse – we love him!
