As you can see, Rosie and Dream don't seem all that impressed. But they'll learn.
Flash's enthusiasm is typical of how all my adult ewes love pumpkins.
It won't be long 'till Rosie and Dream are just as enthusiastic.
Although, Rosie doesn't seem too interested at first...
Until DIVA volunteers to demonstrate "proper pumpkin eating etiquette"!
Dream prefers her pumpkin "hand fed". ;-)
Because I read that pumpkins are a natural de-wormer, I feed them to the boys too. Diamond didn't waste any time checking them out...he LOVES them!
"Bluff Country Black Diamond" will be for sale, at the end of December. I will breed him to Dream and Rosie for 2007 lambs. If I don't sell Diamond this year, I'll sell him next year, as a yearling. He is the black/krunet son of Bravo (black & white, HST) and Flash Flood (black with 'big white spot' ~ awesome fleece!) His price will be $500.00. Diamond was the first place ram lamb and Reserve Champion Ram at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in August, 2006.
...."That Diamond is looking MIGHTY good! ...Chomp, chomp, chomp..."
