We didn’t plan it this way, but many of the ewes were bred by adventuresome wandering Icelandic ram lambs last fall and are lambing out in the hay Craig feeds them on pasture. It’s working out fine! Possibly because of the hardiness of the Icelandic breed, our only death losses have been during extreme cold (-25) or ewes with bag issues. Just goes to show there’s always something new to learn in raising sheep. I always thought that lambs born in March had to go in pens in the barn. Now I see that if they’re the right type of lambs, it’s a lot healthier for them out in the sunshine.
