    I won't be able to get mine for a while yet, until our old horse passes away. I'm spending the time studying up and planning.

    Can't wait to see pics of the romanov x's, such a nice breed.

    I have three Katahdins and one Katahdin/Blackbelly ewe. I replaced my goats with them last year and haven't regretted it at all! They're very friendly, healthy, not too adventurous and the ram is gentle. Here they are last year during our first dusting of snow:

    Left to right are Kaiya, Ember, Bogie and Gracie. I'll be adding an American Blackbelly ewe to the flock this week. I've wanted one ever since meeting the mixed ewe, Gracie - she's got such a personality! Glares and stomps at my collies before grudgingly allowing them to move her. The others are just goofballs who run up to sniff noses, then run away like they're about to be murdered without a move from the dog. LOL

    Here's the Blackbelly ewe I was talking about adding to the herd earlier, with lamb in tow:

    She's one smart cookie! I love my Katahdins but the twin ewes especially are sweet little dingbats. LOL
