Wow! Lambing season started with a bang today. Vanessa kicked off the season delivering quintuplets this morning. All 5 are healthy and amazing. She gave us 3 ewe lambs and 2 ram lambs!!! Vanessa is a wonderful Mom and delivered without assist or problems! What a wonderful way to start!
Only 5 weeks till lambing!!!!!! The countdown is on and the game has begun! As most of you know my husband and I each year guess the date each ewe will deliver and how many lambs they will have. If you are correct on any of these you get a circle. The one with the most circles at the end of lambing season gets .....well.......bragging rights!!!! It just makes it a little more interesting as we wade through those sleepless nights! I have predicted 39 total lambs and Ben 37 total!!! We will see!
Only 6 1/2 weeks till the 2017 lambing season kicks off! The ewes have started their third trimester feed rations, they are looking healthy and pregnant! We are expecting between 35-40 lambs this year. Stay tuned!
Some of you might remember "Elsie" from our 2014 lambing season. She and Josie (our guardian) have had a special bond since Elsie was just a few weeks old. The bond remains strong! Elsie has no fear of dogs as a matter of fact she seeks Josie out as a friend and playmate. Elsie is quite unusual in that regard. It is fun to watch their interactions and antics!
They're back!!! The boys of fall went back to the farm to spend a couple of months with the ewes! Today we put Leevi and Janni back with the ewes to be bred. It takes a lot of shuffling of sheep but our breeding pods are complete! Patrick our wether is now hanging out across town with the 6 ram lambs at Mom's. Thus the Shepherds year begins and already I am dreaming of March and our new lambs :)
Breeding season is fast approaching and we have 6 beautifully bred ram lambs who would like to help you and your flock out!!! Reasonable offers will be considered as we do not want to winter them and desperately wish for them to find good homes.All are white but carry for either brown or black. They have excellent conformation, super friendly personalities and lovely fleece. All are eligible to be registered in the FBA. We are travelling to Easthampton MA on Oct 10th and would be happy to transport your lamb to there.
I love summer mornings when the air is sweet and the sun is rising. The moment when everyone is untouched by the coming day's activities. There is a certain special peace that lifts the spirit! All is well on Sweet Clover Farm!
Our 8 remaining handsome ram lambs are looking for their forever flock. They will be ready for fall breeding season (2016). We have one brown ram lamb and 7 white all who carry for either brown or black. Super friendly and lovely fleeces on all. They are now priced at $200 each.
This beautiful bunch of boys is available to a good forever home. We have slashed the price to $250 for each. They were all born in March and will be ready for fall breeding. Beautiful fleeces and super personalities. Contact us if you would like to come and see this lovely bunch of ram lambs!
Thank you for visiting our farm! We raise purebred Finnsheep. My husband and I both have agricultural
