These ladies are ready for the next adventure. They are no longer fit for our breeding program.
The top three pictures are of Goldie, born March 2021 as a singlet. She is 50/50 Dorper/Katahdin. She was born on our farm, has had no health issues (aside from mastitis), has never been given de-wormer, and has nice hooves. She had one beautiful season of lambing and was then treated for clinical mastitis.
The bottom three pictures are of Bonnie, born August 22, 2016 as a twin. Bonnie joined our flock in 2021. She is a registered, purebred White Dorper (EP134147). She is a gentle spirit, a loving flock member, and a dedicated mama. She has been willing to foster a lamb that does not belong to her, making the choice for retirement a very difficult one. She has some udder issues that make nursing difficult when her lambs are first born, so we have had to supplement with a bottle and want to steer away from that scenario. Bonnie is generally healthy, with good parasite resitence. Her hooves are a bit wonky, but after a year plus of consistent trimming, we have seen improvement.
Both have tested negative for Johne's disease, Lentivirus (CAE/OPP), and Mycoplasma Ovipneumoniae in June 2022
Both ladies weigh between 165-200 lbs.
