BIG MAMA IS SHRINKING! (sorta.😉) | Spring Lambing 2021 | Vlog 436

We are almost done lambing!!!
Which means today, I can take some time and look at how far we've come.
Big Mama is shrinking (slightly...) but still bringing me some daily giggles.
Her daughter with the broken leg is improving daily...
Carissa and I also took some time to organize and CIDR our next breeding group due to lamb in September!
Crazy how as we wrap up lambing, we are already gearing up for another.

  • Ahhhhhh you have a heart of gold to help a friend in need by giving them a newborn lamb for their farm was so sweet. It put tears in my eyes. So glad their Mom accepted your baby so easily. Definitely was meant to be. A God wink. Definitely was all meant to happen ❤🙏

  • Found your channel by divine guidance. I love hearing and seeing what it is like to have a sheep farm. Your channel brings me peace as one that suffers from depression. Even in the sad times of losing little ones and mommas, the joy of watching those little babies jump and run make me smile. Thank you. Linna, 68 yrs old, Arizona

  • I’m new so I’m not sure how you do things I’m wondering if the sheep live there whole life in pens? Do they get to be outside at all? No disrespect if you keep them in I’m sure it’s for a reason I’m just curious. I had grandparents when I was young that had a sheep farm and they free ranged outside so that why I ask.

  • Suggest you tag a video which cover an issue you might want to refer back to with a label for example, preg tox, vaccine, or any issue covered of interest . Then you can just search your categories and the video will come back up for you as well as anyone looking for preg tox, or natural breeding etc.

  • Are these sheep bred for their wool, or for meat? I just heard her say that after two tries, if the ewe doesn’t become pregnant, that they are taken to auction for “whatever.”

  • Are all RFID tags yellow? If they have different colors, you could color tag by month born. When you only want May ewes (for vaccination, breeding, etc. ..) and they are mixed with June ewes. You don’t have to scan ALL of them. Or different color for different breeds & crosses.

  • I'm so in awe of you and all that you do to farm, educate , make us laugh and bring the experience to us. I get tired just watching you complete all your chores! Your empathy, love and compassion for your sheep comes through. Do you take donations to sponsor a lamb? If so please let me know. You have a wonderful family. Haven't updated my profile pic .. didn't get sheared :) - am a proud 5 year advanced breast cancer survivor!. All the best xx

  • Do you use the same insertion tool each ewe or do you disinfect the tool between each? If not, does that ever cause a problem with spreading disease such as chlamydia? I’m thinking in terms of people. I don’t know what it’s like in farming.

  • I love seeing you and your sheep! I found you in researching wool processing, but stayed because you are lovely. I was wondering if there is anyway I could buy some of the raw wool. I am a spinner, knitter and crocheter. I love all the processes and would like the experience of spinning a different breed/type of wool.

  • I’m so glad I found your channel. I have a new business idea for you! What about offering lamb farming vacations for folks? I would totally love to visit your farm and help out. This would be great for kids (especially 4H kids). If you had a room or two to rent near or on the property (maybe partner w/someone). You could control the dates and # of people that can participate. I would totally pay for that type of experience. Like a dude ranch.

  • Okay, I've watched enough videos now to realize you are breeding for meat. I'm not sure how you ended up on my recommended youtube videos but here you are. As I said in another post, I'm a spinner. I process raw wool for spinning then knitting. So I'm interested in shepherding from that perspective. That said, I've found your videos absolutely fascinating. I'm so moved by how strongly you feel about the results of lambing, while knowing that, in the background, you are sending these lambs off for meat. Understand: I am not judging about that. I get it. I'm just fascinated to witness that paradox. (Feels like a paradox to me....) Have you ever brought in someone who knows fleece to take a look at your fleeces as you shear them? I see that you just stuff it all into a bag and send it off for bulk sales. But I *so* want to see the details of the fleece-- how much crimp? (There was one video I saw where you showed the crimp.) Do you have a local mill you could send at least the best of your fleeces off for spinning into yarn? And depending on how good some of them are, there might be people (like me) who would be interested in buying a raw fleece from you. I'm in the States, so that probably wouldn't work, but as you're shearing, if you had someone there to say: "Oh THIS one is sellable to hand-spinners..." Wish I lived closer. (I'm outside of Washington DC USA.) Next time you shear, please take closer-up pictures of the actual fiber.

    • P.S. (and in part given the response from Iris below), you *might* want to look into seeing if there is a local fibershed or equivalent in your region. There is a movement underway to get more local wool out to the world, with a focus on a more local economy. See That one in particular was started in California, but I know there's a New England based group, by a different name that is at least somewhat closer to you. I do know from the one I'm involved with (Chesapeake Fibershed), that one of the challenges is finding local mills who can process the fleece into yarn or other material.

  • #SandiBrock, God bless you and your family 💖 I've moved into a house (in a huge town of 550 ppl 😁😂🙃) and I am out of my apartment now. I have 7 watermelon plants coming up in pots on my back indoor porch - a one season, not a four season. Watermelons are the start of my "garden". PTL, I am not able to have animals because I can't care for them on my own, we'll have to wait and see about my abilities regarding the garden. I'm going to be hopeful though. 😇
