hormones: go!

I’m in trouble. We got two little lambs. For meat. To eat. And they are 3 days old. I am bottle feeding them.

Uh oh.

They call me “Maaaaaa” and butt my hands and suck on my fingers. I want to eat them in a “You’re so cute I could just eat you” sort of way. Not in a literal “shoot you in the head and take off your skin” sort of way.img_8230.jpg

    Awww. Maybe you could just keep them for goat cheese?

    Well, they’re sheep, and in order to have cheese, we have to have milk, and in order to have milk, we have to get them pregnant, and then we’d have to deal with their babies…it gets complicated.

    We do want to raise sheep eventually, but the shearing is the part we don’t want to deal with. We are looking into meat and dairy breeds that shed their wool every year.
