Experts say it takes about 2 hours of work per year to maintain one ewe and her offspring on farm pasture. Farmers caring for 20 to 100 ewes thus would add 40 to 200 more hours of work to their regular duties.

While everyone knows about black sheep, not so well known are those that produce blond, red, beige, brown, silver, and grey wool. Breeders of such relative rarities usually belong to the Natural Colored Wool Growers Association (NCWGA),

Practice Makes Perfect

In showmanship it’s just as important how I look and stand as it is how Bella looks and stands.  Foot placement is very important to make sure Bella looks her best and this pic show how she needs to stand so the judge sees her best side. 

Blue Ribbon Winner

Congrats to Darla on her First winning ribbons  from the Pakenham Fair last weekend! Stop by to see her at Carp Fair and get a selfie with this star

What is the best way to beat the heat if your a sheep (well technically a lamb)… A Hair Cut! Can you name three items you can make with sheeps wool?

A nice walk on a hot summer night to keep us in good show shape!
