Sable oversees the move to the side pasture
I always like to turn my girls out onto fresh pasture the last few weeks before lambing begins. I feel it provides them with the very best nutrition to carry them and their unborn lambs through the final weeks of pregnancy. That plus the grass is getting long and I don't want to have to mow it!
The lush, green grass is fairly bursting with nutrition
The nineth (and final!) "Alice Watch" will commence the first week of May. She should lamb around the end of May. I will keep one lamb and Alice will not be bred again. She's earned her retirement!
I entered "Alice Watch" in the search box on this blog and it brought up a list of all the posts where we talked about waiting for Alice to lamb. I didn't go through them all but apparently, there are FIVE pages of Alice Watch posts!

I'll help you keep an eye on Alice, Mom..."
Thanks Dreamer. I knew I could count on you!
