What happens when a ram gets a hernia? Well with this ram in particular he became infertile. We had a handful of ewes that were in with this ram and only 1 became pregnant. We were a little…ok …a lot late in turning in a back-up ram with the ewes resulting in JULY babies! Oiy. But they are cute as buttons!
One is a beautiful polled black grey ewe lamb out a first time ewe, Eyja. She did an excellent job of lambing and claiming her baby right away. Dimity was up promptly and got busy nursing.
The next ewe to lamb in this late season was Bridle. In the wee hours of the night she delivered twins and had them both clean and with full bellies by the time we found them in the morning.
Durango is a handsome polled moorit spotted ram that possible is grey too. We’ll see as he grows whether or not he is grey.
Damia is a beautiful, polled, moorit, spotted ewe that might also be grey.
Sometimes things don’t go as planned~but babies in July isn’t so bad! 😉
