Fall-born breeding stock is the focus at the farm. Ewes and rams flush on spring pasture; rams meet the ewes in May; lambs are on the ground in October; weaning in January. We select replacement animals, save a few favorites to show as yearlings; some of these are then for sale. In May 2018 we will have for sale some lambs sired by a son of the champion New Zealand natural colored ram C5-12, and a son of the Wallalo Park Australian white ram.
At almost seven months of age (as of April), they are looking mighty fine. In the sale sheep, ram colors are dark silver and black (some moorit carriers); ewe lambs are silver and black. These lambs were born in October 2017.
Here is an image of the sire of these natural colored Merinos.
