Lambs to Processing

We have a big crop of lambs this year, and the first six made their way to the meat locker. I always hate saying goodbye, but these boys were ready to go. They were starting to harass the ewes.  It's been raining a lot, so I didn't get a chance to take pictures of them in the field, but with such a great crop of horns, I had to get one last picture of these guys.  Here they are in the sheep transport system.

 Comet (whose little spot on his forehead went away as his horns grew in)

 Bumble - not horns on this guy and he was soooo friendly. I hated to see him go.
 Rudolph - Rudy was born with little nubs of horns, look at those suckers! What a handsome boy!
 Hermey and Cupid. These two wouldn't cooperate for pictures. Stinkers.

Bye guys! Off to your final destiny!
