Well it's been a good year and a half since we got our first sheep, and we are in the midst of our second spring lambing. Last year I only had three ewes to breed. We kept two of the ewe lambs born to us last year, to breed this year. One of those was Molly. She is very special to me for a few reasons, mostly because she has a beautiful black wool coat, and as wool is an important commodity from this endeavour, having beautiful natural colours is a definite bonus.
