Of the 2 rams we've had, the half Ile de France produced larger lambs. One of my ewes that has more Ile de France (maybe 1/4, shes still very mixed) is my fattest ewe, produces triplets and maintains body condition, and shearer said her wool was best in my flock. So I'm thinking to get purebred Ile de France for the next ram.Congratulations on the lamb crop! What breed of ram will you get next?
Making hay! Another congratulations on the hay!
Yes, Miranda LAMBert, will stay. Ewenique will also stay. Both are my original ewes, we bought 4. One had to be put down because of a ruptured pre pubic tendon. Lady Baa Baa unfortunately is on the cull list. She didn't lamb last year and I put her with Ringo twice, for months. We'll see what happens this year, but I don't have much faith in her lambing.Is the udder staying? Miranda, I think.
