We are about a week out from seeing our first lambs arrive. Excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I am feeling. I think this season is one of my favorites, ranking up there with all major holidays. 😉
- Very large Audrad, pregnant with AI babies. Sire is Raftur from Iceland!
This fall we imported semen from Iceland to inseminate some of the ewes with. I am not sure how successful we were but we definitely had a couple catch, which is very exciting!
It was quite funny watching Esja interact with this hen. She would let the hen pick little pieces of hay off of her and wag her tail the whole time. 🙂
Dugur made sure everyone was behaving themselves and would come and check things out every couple of minutes…
I love the pattern of the Silver Laced Wyandotte! So dainty looking.
Lukka is another ewe in the AI group. We are hoping she caught with a Grabotni straw.
- Lukka, is she carrying Grabotni babies?
Dyr, the ewe matriarch decided to stick her head in and see what I was up to.
Uma is another ewe that looks like she caught with AI. Yeah!
Pretty Sybil was taking a bit of a rest…
Druna is expecting her first lamb this spring.
Esja, is another hopeful…in the AI category. She looks as if she could be carrying Bogi babies!
The rain started up so these two took shelter and I took that as my cue to head back to the house!
