Sheep slideshow

Started with just 7 ewes and 2 rams in 2014, our flock of grass-fed Katahdin ewes now numbers 20.  Our the next few years the flock will grow to between 50-60 breeding ewes.  

The breeding ewes in the sheep barn.Katahdin ewes grazing in our Orchard property in tandem with our calves and heifer replacements.Some of our ewes grazing in mid-October.  With properly electrified netting, our sheep remain safe from predators.  Grazing larger heifers nearby also helps to deter would be predators.Katahdins are mainly white in color, but also come with a bit of brown and even black.  Unlike wool sheep,  Katahdins are hair sheep and naturally shed their hair each year.Our Katahdin ewes came to us gentle and healthy.  Our careful shepherding and lush pastures help keep them that way.Here you can see our one black Katahdin ewe.  She lambed a ram lamb with her exact same coloring down to the white spot on top of his head.  Not all of these lambs go with this ewe, but her maternal aura--and the winter sun-- certainly attracted them to nestle beside her.Every little bit of sunshine matters in the winter.  Serene winter scene in the sheep barn.
