Lisa, who is still recovering from her broken ankle, came with me on a road trip up to Siskiyou County. Yesterday we delivered Peg and Two-Bits to Jackie Post at Sheep-to-Shop in Vacaville. Lisa and Peg both enjoyed meeting Evangeline the alpaca. Then Lisa and I continued on up to Yreka and this morning we drove out to Tawanda Farms in Montague, to pick up two Romney ewe lambs, a lovely 2-year old ewe named Maison, a ram lamb, and O’Hara the ram who is on loan for the breeding season. The ewe lambs and ram lamb are all white, but are known as “b-factor” lambs, because they carry a copy of a recessive color gene, which will come out in their offspring. We also brought back two b-factor ewe lambs for Sarah Keiser at Wild Oat Hollow. ¬†Tonight the rams were happy in an outdoor paddock next to our other ram lambs, and the ewes were all snug in the barn.
