It has been a busy few days here with the arrival of 7 lambs – 3 sets of twins and 1 single.

    In consideration of our fiber goals, we have been very fortunate to obtain a registered Teeswater ram from Pitchfork Ranch in Michigan. He came to us as a lamb earlier this summer & has settled in well, although he did have an altercation with a porcupine
