Today we got the pregnant ewes out into pastures where they can lamb. The grass is still not very high so we put out some hay.
We got 3 round bales to try. These are smaller than some, only 4 feet wide and about 1000 pounds each. Ken can move them with the tractor without a bale spike but it’s not a long term solution.
I wanted to see how it unrolled out and we managed to unroll it by hand without too much difficulty. Then we let the sheep in and they seem to be happy to be out of the winter corrals and enjoying the alfalfa in the hay as a treat.
We are now officially within the lambing period. I expect them to really get started in a couple more days with next week being the big lambalanch period.
