New sheep to the flock
This is Tex, Tup's dad he was a pedigree Texel ram
Tex is now living at another local farm sharing his love about.
Brent picked up our new girls on Sunday
They are two years old
The girls were a bit wary at first - well wouldn't you coming off over 100 acres to 3 acres. I imagine it was there first time seeing a car let alone travelling along a highway.
They are lucky girls ending up at our place - they will have a great life for a few years and be well cared for.
They are texel crosses - texel is a bred that we have found to be great.
They have name tags so I need to try not to get to know their numbers as this helps not getting attached
But seeing and knowing a number I'm gonna have to be very careful not to get fond of a particular ewe.
The pressure is now on Tup to perform.
Tupping time will hopefully now begin and Tup will do his job so we can have spring lambs - one of my favourite times living here.
