2014 Clun Forest Lambs   


  
We had 8 lambs, 6 are ewes and 2 are rams. We kept all 6 of the ewe lambs and Treat's ram lambs. 
   We choose our 5 best ewes to have lambs this year. Treat, Fancy and Forest all have beautiful natural colored fleeces and Chocolate Chip and Fen have nice white wool. You always need white wool, whether you are dyeing it or just because white makes all the other colors stand out. All of these ewes are healthy, hardy and have good wool.
   Here are photos of the ewes and their lambs.
