|Icelandic Sheep are TOUGH CUSTOMERS!|
Icelandic sheep are one of the world's purest & oldest breeds of sheep.Through a history that includes the Vikings & spans 1100 years, they have a stellar reputation for benefitting sheepherders in three ways. First, they're valued for their meat. Second, they're
treasured for their wool. Finally, they're esteemed for their milk. Sounds like a winner!
|Did Ewe know that I have genes that Shepherds admire?|
|"Bare-faced & Pregnant" is my normal condition in the Spring!|
|Lambing & Springtime are perfect together!|
|I feel like the "Old Woman in the Shoe"!|
|I just want to be a Sheep ,Baa, Baa!|
|Ewe need to know that I watch my KIDS!|
Icelandic sheep make excellent mothers. They are instinctively
doting & caring mothers. They are quick to claim their 5-7 pound bundle of joy, cleaning it, bonding with it, & carefully watching it's every move. Icelandic ewes are definitely prime candidates for a "Mother of the Year" award!
|Is it time for dinner? Ewe know we are really hungry!|
|Giving multiple births is not easy! Ewe have to be "Strong like Bull."|
Sheep are literally "full of life" in the Spring of the year. Lambing is an exciting, yet busy time for the Shepherd. He or she needs to always be on call to assist the mother ewes, as they deliver new life into the world! It's an exciting reward they always enjoy receiving.
