New puppy ... Jiff

Jiff is pictured shortly after arriving here at 8 weeks of age. She was acquired from Candy Kennedy and is sired by her Imported Moss, a son of Millichap's Ben and is out of her Imported Jet, a daughter of Jim Cropper's Dan. Nothing more exciting than a new puppy.

2010 Wiltshire cross ram lamb

Even though both of his parents are polled and AI sired by polled New Zealand and Australian rams, the first lamb born in 2010 is happily sprouting horns. As a result of our initial use of Wiltshire Horn semen on our base flock we expect a certain percentage of horned offspring out of some of our rams.

Tex - Purebred Wiltshire horn ram lamb

Purchased from Dan Nigh in Harper TX, Tex is a son of the imported Australian ram Wonoka 271/02 and is 3/4 Australian breeding. Guess it goes without saying that we'll be seeing more horns popping up next year.

Lambing draws near for yearlings sired by Australian Wiltipoll semen

The top three pics are all yearlings AI sired by the Wiltipoll ram GeeTee317. They all raised lambs last year as ewe lambs. The ewes in the bottom pic are being supplemented with alfalfa as lambing draws near.
