2016 Clun Forest Lambs   

      This year there were 16 lambs, 9 ewes and 7 rams. We selected 10 of our best ewes to be bred to our ram "Macnut", for the 2016 lambs and we were not disappointed. All of the lambs are big, healthy and beautiful. The lambs were born in early May 2016.
    We are keeping 6 ewe lambs and 1 ram lamb. All of the other lambs have gone to their new homes now.    
    Our goal is to breed for sheep with soft wool for spinning and weaving, that are strong
and healthy with good hooves, very good mothers with high milk production and fast growing lambs.
