21 had her baby the other day while we turned our backs.

It will be very interesting to see what the markings look like after his wool comes in.
This past Friday Jesse and Alice went to a "back to farm auction" in hopes of picking up some new sheep. Jesse was brave taking a two year old to a livestock auction, but it was a successful night. The next morning we were ready to welcome the sheep to the barn.
