Something pushed part of the fence down and took our smallest ewe lamb Lovely with it. There have been some teenaged black bears and whatnot running around. It’s hard to say what happened. We looked for any traces of her, but there was no sign on our land or the neighbors bordering us.
The rest of the girls are fine and boys were in a separate paddock. I’ll have to record her as a probable predation loss.
We’ve had a lot of health issues, and scaled our flock down. We have about a dozen total between girls and guys, plus a healthy wether in Zuko 4. The land can support them even if we don’t get around to eating the rams this year.
Preliminary plans are to shear in a couple of months. Should be interesting.
