Holy cow, errr sheep, is she round!!! I think sheep are very cool! Good luck with the birth! I have to say, I have never in my life seen a sheep with a tail either!

I just love sheep, and it really is nice to see haired varieties.
We only ever had wool sheep.
I had a Suffolk ram that just adored me when I was younger.

Your ewe is gorgeous.

I learned from him that if you ride a sheep, chances are good that it'll only go in reverse

Awww...what a beauty!!!

I have had Mouflons and Barbados...Loved them both, but loved the cross of the two even better, because I loved the mouffie attitude more, and markings of the Barbadoes too!

I am guessing your Ram is part Mouflon?? He's lovely...

I have no clue what kind of mix he is. I bought him b/c of his great temperment and he was just Stunning
they said he was a Barbados mix. But after lookinng up Mouflons i think your right!

I promis to post pics of the lambs
If you look at my Siggy you will see one of last years lamb. (as well as some of my goats and my calf.. and some of my rehabs)

Yeah...the Mouflons always had a much milder temperment than the Barbados did; I loved that about them when I raised the two breeds! Even the rams when fully mature at 2-3 years old retained an easily handled attitude.

I bet your ewe has twins this time around
Can't wait to see what she has!!!

my last Ram was a Fluke of Genetics. He was a pure bred Barbados but pure white !. He was a killer on 4 hooves
he was obsessed with me.. and if I tried to pay attention to my other two sheep ..he woud charge and try to Ram me. He was far to aggressive for my small Herd so I sold him to someone with a bigger group of ladies to keep him busy


this is him "Jacob"




This Is Jacob and Precious's twin Lambs last year. Both boys though this year I want girls!







Precious did have one daughter two years ago. Her Name was Harmony she was Precious's first Baby. She also had one Ram lamb from Jacob/ But Sadly after she weaned Her son. she was attacked by a stray dog. She fell and her leg snapped. and the bone snapped though the front of her leg. We had to have her PTS. RIP HARMONY!




This year I pray she has Twin girls.
I am also adopting a Friesian Lamb

Aww! What sweethearts!
I have a Southdown pair and my ewe is due to lamb around that same time.
Best of thoughts for a stress-free lambing for momma, the baby and you!

Over the river and through the woods...
I don't have any experience with sheep, but I have helped my MIL with her goats for 3 years. I guess they are all in the same general family, aren't they. Those pics of the baby sheep look just like baby goats! I guess when I think of sheep I still think of the little whooly white ones.


So how many are you expecting?
