O/T, but my older kids who grew up in New Zealand were the same with swans. Only black ones over there - they were so surprised the first time they saw a British white swan.

So a year on. Got nine lambs from five ewes last year and kept four of the six gimmers (the two other gimmers went to a neighbour for 'road testing'). The two castrates are growing on for my freezer come November and one ram lamb I left entire for future breeding. So no lambs this year as I'm growing on my females who will go to the ram this December. So here's my females:-Image
And here's my ram as a baby (with his mother). At a year old he as excellent conformation and an evil temper. :evil: (Summer, 2015 he'll be featuring as mutton chops! :grin: )Image
