LAMBING TIME IS HAPPILY OVER
Again born healthy lambs. They're growing fast as usually.
This spring we got five tripletslamb only one of them is not growing as fast as the other ones.
There're born few blacky colored oxford downs and few like dalmatian colored. I saw a foto of suffolk lambs and these look like similary.
I'm happy about dark colored because I wanna grow blacky oxford dows too. One of black (ram)lamb M -pedigree line is so good looking.
Next its time for cultivation and meanwhile for shearing. Its a lot of work to do as usually at this springtime.
