(the first bunch of lambs we docked today)
'Twas a beautiful day in the neighborhood today! Warm temps and melting ice and snow sent creeks rushing down and circling round our house. I feel like we are surrounded by a moat! It's funny to hear a gurgling creek in these parts. It happens here rarely, but it does mainly when there is a great run-off of snow-melt or a fast or long rainfall. This meltdown will fill lots of creeks and reservoirs and rivers. The Little Missouri is coming out of its banks.
We docked our first bunch of lambs today. My parents came out because they like to help with docking, and the little neighbor girls enjoyed playing in a big pen full of baby lambs.
76 Lambs (41 bucks & 35 ewes)
That makes for a 152% crop out of that bunch.
