Mothers and Daughters
One month from breeding time and look at Avalon (white), she is almost as big as her mother Kia.
Here is first time mother Gardenia (left) and Jeepers. Jeepers gave birth to twins last year. Since the weather was nice recently I broke out the electric netting again and let the girls graze on the grass and leaves in the yard.
Azalia is Gardenia's daughter, she is a plump one and is bigger than all the other ewes except for her mother.
Alma is a product of Jeepers and Kilarney, she is the smallest of all our sheep.
Kia and Ava, these two are smart and wary. All the sheep just love leaves, unfortunately I think I'm still going to have to rake.
