A couple photos above of ewe-lamb Flash, getting ready to run off. She is showing you how alert and wary she is, also how beautifully she is shaping up and she is getting a nice coat of wool. She really looks like she is ready to launch, and she did take off right after the photo. Flash will be a replacement ewe for us, and should be ready to breed in a year or year-and-half from now. We left her mother with Flash this season so that Flash can learn to be a good mother herself. They are very strongly bonded, still.
The photo below shows her with some other Santa Cruz Island ewes.
Love these sheep! We are still very much dedicated to preserving this rare and wonderful breed.
