More beautiful fleeces are arriving now. Three of the five ewes that were bred to my natural colored ram have produced three ewes and two rams. The last two should be any minute... One ewe is natural colored, the other white, both experienced with this sort of thing, having produced triplets last year. The rams will be available for sale when weaned.
So far there are nine white lambs and five natural colored. Seven more ewes to go in theory. Of the five that were AI'd in November I am positive that two settled. These five will be sheared in two weeks and then I'll know for sure.

Still waiting for lambs but the weather is mild so they will wait until we get freezing rain again. Ah, the life of the shepherd.
