Summer 2009 ~ "For Sale" List

With weaning now in progress, the 'For Sale' list of ewes, rams, and lambs is being compiled and is growing rapidly. To date there are 30 Bluefaced Leicesters on the list, with an additional group of ewe lambs still to be decided upon.
The listed sheep include several F1 progeny, and numerous F2's out of double F1 parents. We also offer both white and natural colored Blues, and many of our whites carry and produce colored. We offer show quality stock, crossing type sires, as well as excellent prospects for the discriminating fiber flock.

Maryland ~ Hard at work

When you take 12 Blue Leicesters to a show there isn't much time for sitting back and relaxing during the weekend. Your time is spent either setting up, grooming, showing, feeding & watering, answering questions, or packing everything up to go home. Well we did manage to get in some social time in the evenings with our fellow shepherds.
This is one of the ram lambs getting his first grooming on the trim stand.
*note the pouring rain outside - it lasted all 5 days and didn't end until we got to Ohio.
Here is the same ram lamb, all tidied up and ready for tomorrow's show.
He actually didn't mind the trim stand because he was so entertained by all the people passing by, and by those who stopped to admire him and give him a chin scratch.
