A hardy breed of Northern Short Tailed Sheep. Prized for their wool.
Icelandic Sheep are highly versatile, and low maintenance.
Two layers of wool.
Tasty low-fat meat.
Two lambs each.
What we have been doing lately.
Single male lamb.
Number 64 has twin ewe lambs. Fi milked out the ewe’s colostrum and fed the lambs by stomach tube.
Our first lambs arrived on Saturday. Twins from the Short Brown Dumpy dynasty. Hopefully, there will be quite a few more in the next three weeks.
Cowslips growing in our orchard.
