Lambs!

As we wrap up lambing season this year I thought I’d share some pictures of our adorable lambs with you. They’re growing in front of our eyes and won’t look this small for long. I love the lambs at this age, they do lots of napping in the sun and they stay very close to their mothers throughout the day.  When checking the pasture it’s very easy for me to do a head count, all I have to do is find the moms and the lambs are usually right nearby.  This will all change soon as they grow and become more independent, they’ll be bouncing all over the farm in no time!

At The Sachem Farm we raise Bluefaced  Leicester and Romney sheep.  Our ram is a very dashing Bluefaced Leicester named Newman. Newman came to us last fall from a farm in New Hampshire.  As a result some of our lambs are pure BFL, and some are Romney/BFL crosses. We’ve always been completely smitten by BFL fiber and knew the breed would be a great choice for us. This can be a daunting decision for farmers starting out with sheep as there are oh… so many fantastic breeds to choose from.  The Romneys were an unexpected addition but have turned out the be an excellent choice as well.  We love the fiber coming from both breeds but the crosses give us something extra special as it’s the best of both. The flock, except the new lambs, will be sheared this Sunday. The sheep will be happy to be liberated from their fleeces as the warm days are coming fast! We’ll deliver the fiber directly to the mill and should have this batch of yarn available for sale in about  4 months.
