Juno was born!

I can't remember if I shared this here, but our oldest son (almost 12) asked for sheep. We decided to buy him two for his birthday/Christmas gift this year. We heard from the breeder last week that while she was expecting any lambs until March/April, she had a fence break in September that resulted in black twin girls being born last Tuesday and asked if we wanted one! Of course we said yes. Our son named her Juno. We are just waiting to get word of the second one, we are still deciding on a male or a female, as we have options of sharing a ram if we wanted another ewe.

Our farm is growing little by little. Juno won't come home for another 7 weeks though as they send them home at 8 weeks, but only with a companion so it could be longer since sheep need their own kind. We are excited though! :)

    You know I am not sure how they are doing it. My assumption is they allow them with mom until a certain point when they begin to wean them to go to their new home. Good question to ask though, just to learn more about how they are doing it.

    She said Juno is with her mom until she starts the weaning process. She feels her mom can teach her how to be a better mom than she could and it's good nutrition for her to drink her mom's milk. All of which I agree with.
