    Well it seems that my two 2 year old Katahdin ewes might actually be bred! They're starting to get some udders and on one of them (Patch) I actually think I saw the lamb kick! And if they are actually bred and it's not just my wishful thinking, then they are bred to an AWESOME purebred registered Katahdin ram! And that's the ram that Patch was bred to last time and she produced the quad colored ram lamb. I'll try and get some new pictures of them as soon as I can.

    Patch is in front and Chloe in back.

    This would be the sire. This is the only picture I ever got of him before he was sold, it does NOT do him justice at all!

    The only problem is that when they lamb it's going to be cold. Which I'm not too fond of, but at least I have some nice barns to lock them in and I at least KNOW that they are bred and that I need to be watching them.

    Wonderful, now you just have to get a goat and ram to cross. I would like to see that. LOL

    Anyway, I am happy for you and can't wait to see the pics.

    Hopefully they'll lamb in the barn, that would sure make it easier on me! lol I'm not too worried about them, Katahdins are very hardy. :wink:

    I've got before and after pictures!

    Patch, a couple of days before I brought her home.

    :ROFL: Yeah hair sheep generally get to keep their tails. I like them. lol

    Usually only wool breeds get their tails docked, that way the feces doesn't get stuck on the wool on the tail and create fly strike. :wink:

    Congrats crissa, i see the udders!
    We have sheep with tails at the dairy. They look like rat tails though, not nearly as pretty asn Crissa's sheeps tails.

    Re: I might actually have some good news for once!

    Patch gave birth somtime this morning! A single......ram lamb. :( I was really hoping for a ewe lamb to keep, oh well, still waiting on Chloe, so maybe she'll have one in there for me! I'll get some pictures of the little guy soon.

    And I might just be getting another ewe lamb! One of my boss's sheep gave birth to another tri colored ewe lamb, so I may get her as well.

    I'm so excited! :greengrin:

    Oh yes, they're doing fine! Patch is a great mom, and the baby is looking good too. He's white with some red spots. Anyone want a pet? lol He's already very sweet. I'm just glad I finally have a live baby again that I will get to play with! :)
