Isn’t it a wonderful time of year? Lambing season! This is where all new winners start- new year, new sheep! Lambs all over are being born and already look like contenders. As someone who has been in the show ring since I was five, the traits and characteristics I look for my show flock are specific to what I hear from the judges; length of loin, consistent fleece, black points, among many others. These, I constantly check as the lambs grow. Yet, all my Romneys have the qualities I wish for them to possess; cute faces, fuzzy fleeces, and unique personalities. As a youth in this industry, I take pride in my flock. Regardless of their show ring attributes, our lambs are just that, our lambs- they are our hard work , dedication, and hours of enjoyment. Happy lambing!
