Still Waiting

The lambs still have not arrived. Today marks 140 possible gestational days. Gestation for sheep is 145 days, plus or minus 5 days. Sheep cycle twice a month, with the peak, or more fertile cycles, being in the fall. We took the ewes to Paul Shetterly's early in October for breeding. They came home early in November. Leaving them for the month in order to cover at least two cycles. It worked. Everyone returned pregnant. So the wait continues. Live well. Carmen
