    Pretty lambs! They are such a pretty color. Good luck lambing

    Love the goats playing. I like the little stump, and someone always has to be on it. :greengrin:

    How tall are your fences? They look really nice!

    We have 10 foot game fencing as they used to raise elk on our land. It is reinforced every 6 feet or so with 6 inch in diameter drilling pipe. There is also a second pen across our driveway. In these pics the girls were all in the small section of one pen (I call it the winter pen).

    But today, I put the horses and boys across the driveway in the big "summer" pen since it is to be nice for the next few days and then opened up the girls pen so they have about 2 1/2 acres of treed area to play in.

    OHHHHH AND my ewe lambed last night!!!!!!!!!!!! A single - but a :girl: so hubby said that she is staying for the breeding program!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

    you know we almost got some of those for the petting zoo but if they can not be taimed they would not be good for a petting zoo.

    If you bottle raise the Blackbelly and never put them back out with the wild herd, then you can tame them - but that is the only way. I can get them to come up and eat out of a pan from me - but that is it.

    Great eye Crissa - yah that is Fire. She is great! Real tiny, open, and healed. She is not one that I pushed to breed this year. She is just so tiny. But fall maybe to a nigi - I would be hesitant to put her with my Nubie. She still likes to come up and check my pockets, and even after the near death experience and what not that took months to heal - she knows that I was only trying to help and is just as sweet as the day that I brought her home.

    That's great! Lyric was the same way, tiny and then finally hit her growth spurt and is now quite a nice size. Next time you can I'd really like to see a picture of her. *pwease?* I'm so glad that she recovered though.

    I am fixin to go out there, so I will take a new picture for you - her hair looks weird - but it is because she likes to lay on the plastic slide, so it does a weird patting thing - hard to explain - LOL!
