After that Mom and I both took it easy. Mom actually took a nap but she said it made her more tired so she didn't have the energy to do much else. So we turned on the Show McLoed's Daughters on Roku and we "vegged" out for most of the afternoon.
I spent some time on the computer looking into growing our Carrie Clothes line. While I was digging up info I found two things of interest. First is a grant worth $500.00 to purchase a Dorset Ewe. I applied and we will see what happens. I also emailed the farm that bred and raised Carrie to see if they had any more Ewes for sale. I haven't herd (okay I know the word is Heard but I couldn't help it ... Sorry) back from them yet.
In my research I found out something that I wish I had found out a little bit before now... Okay, Yesterday would have been so much better then today. You see we keep all the sheep together when it isn't breeding season so after we sheared yesterday almost everything was turned out into the pasture. The only thing left up in the stalls is still waiting to birth or has issues. Now for the fun part. Did you know that there are some breeds of sheep that can breed out of season. Like the Alpacas some breeds of sheep can be bred anytime presented to a Ram. Did you know that Dorsets are just such a breed?? Me either. That explains Chief's behavior yesterday when we turned Carrie out. If I am not mistaken by fall Carrie may be throwing a Dorset/Southdown Cross.
Did I want a fall birthing season??? Well, I guess I have one now ....
