Going to have a pool...

Since I have no idea who is bred. Seriously. ONE Cheviot girl is a blue butt, and all three Border Leicesters are, but one got re-bred in December, but the other three Cheviot yearlings- only have smidgens of blue on them, and one has none... One fly in the ointment is that I stopped putting marker on the ram after a while....

So, to this end, I am going to have a pool on how many lambs we will have. Folks, it may even be none!!! Think of this like counting the jelly beans in a jar. The person who comes closest without going over will win............

A gift certificate to Border Collies in Action! Or, if you prefer, Premier Sheep supplies- for the shepherds out there!

So, get your thinking caps on. I honestly have no clue who is bred and who is not.

This should be fun!

Just leave me a comment with the number you think....

I vote 6. Lambs are awesome.

How long did you leave the ram in with the ewes?? On what date did you put him in and when did you take him out? Once i know this, then I'll hazard a guess.

He's still in. But, Cheviots are really strongly seasonal(fall) breeders... No breeding behavior lately. He went in Oct 16th.

PS: We'll give them until May.

Okay, my guess is 7 since 6 is already taken. ;^)

Remember, you can't go over... Still time to recalculate....
