Yes, it was still a bit cold, so we have kept the sheep in the barn at night and during colder days with plenty of hay to stoke their furnaces with. Again, this was an unusually long and cold winter, and when planning ahead for a lambing date and shearing
Here is Haylie's Hogget Fleece (her first shearing). It has all the unique attributes of a Herdwick Fleece, with a really cool pattern to boot!
Check back often, the lambs are due to start arriving April 10th! We'll keep you posted.
