Got some Gotland/Shetland lambs!!

 So alot has been going on since my last post.....um like a year ago:) 
Pictured above is my handsome new Gotland ram I purchased from Kim Goodling www.grandviewfarmvt.com.  His name is Lars. I have not bred my Shetland sheep in over 3 years so instead of bringing in a new Shetland Ram I opted for crossing the Shetland ewes with Gotland ram.  I could not be happier!
 Seven lambs were born over the past month.....4 ewes and 3 ram lambs. Pictured below are some of the new crew.  They are super personable and I am so excited about their wool:)







So besides breaking my left foot climbing over a stall wall in July, starting my 25th year of teaching high school history in August, going to Vermont to get Lars, and turning 50 in November, life has been anything but dull;)
