Sheep roundup

The pregnant ewes are finally all together with their daughter lambs, and all the rams are together, which will make management easier.  The breeding pen was not really set up for hay feeding, but now we have two groups with access to the hay feeders, so that will go easier.

It’s been a really mild winter, grass is already coming up.  We should have fairly rich pasture this year with the extra time.  Still had to order more hay though, and we also have to fix a barn leak so we can safely use the remaining hay.  That’ll be fun.

We’ll try to get some hoof trims and worm checks in this month, while the ewes are not too heavily pregnant and then just focus on minerals and adequate hay until lambing season.
