Lambs & Yearlings

The lambs and yearling ewes are separated from the older ewes now & the top picture shows the difference in size between a yearling & this year's lambs. The "TE" lambs are the Dorset x Rambouillet crossbred twin ewe lambs. The 3rd picture is one of our Dorset ewe lambs, #116 in front of a yearling Dorset ewe #113. The young ewe is a full sister to the yearling and will grow to the same size in a year. The last photo of #R838 is a twin Rambouillet ewe lamb.
We also pulled the ram lambs out of this bunch ...... we don't want them to breed the yearlings. The ram lambs are in the barn with the bigger market lambs that we pulled out for our buyers.
