Medichi: Pregnant or No - That is the Question!

I went for a ride yesterday in Lake Le-Aqua-Na, and Medichi was acting very peculiar. Some folks riding behind me said "She's acting that way because she's pregnant." I have been thinking ,on and off, that she may be. As I was riding down the trails she was waddling - it felt very strange under saddle. If she is preggers - she should foal anytime between July and late August. That is a pretty large window, but I'm going on the fact that she was in with a black and white paint stud all last summer. I picked her up late last September, from the same field the stud was in. Her abdomen is extended quite a bit. I'll be keeping a very close eye on her, and I'll keep everyone updated on her progress.


I almost forgot!!! This is Ceasar, our little steer. Isn't he cute :)
He was born on the Ides of March: March 15th. The name Ceasar seemed appropriate.

Spring 2008

Lambing is through, now we just watch the little ones grow and grow.
How the time flew by. . .
Now we focus on their safety through the summer.

All TEN lambs are doing great!!!
(only one had to be bottle fed - ewe lamb from the quadruplets - understandably so)

We ended up with 5 rams and 5 ewes.
4 of the rams will be up for sale around August - October.
Keep and eye on our blog for those updates.

I am preparing to process the fleeces from this spring - they are gorgeous!!!
I will be selling much of the roving right here on the blog - you can always e-mail me to see what we have available:

It's been a great spring - I'll be processing fleece for a while now. . .
Until next time!!!!! I will be posting our progress throughout the summer!!!
