Time to trim your hooves!!

Time to trim your hooves!!

Hey everyone! We finished our weaning on October 3 and now the lambs are being finished on our second cut alfalfa/grass pasture. Most of the alfalfa is too mature but there is some nice grass in there. Our average weaning weight was 83 lbs and we had 41% of our lambs over 90 lbs. Not too bad forĀ a June lambing. They are basically the same weaning weights as last year and were born a month later…We used our new corrals which made the day go really smooth, and we had lots of help from our good friends the Nosyk’s. Here are some pictures, enjoy!
