Sad to send three lambs to abattoir

My flock size was reduced this week as I dropped off three lambs at the abattoir.

I felt quite sad, but they had reached market weight and Rainy River Meats was in need of lamb (they have a difficult time keeping lamb on their shelf).

A friend of mine lost his lambs to wolves, so I’m happy I was able to market them, at least.

We still have “Charolette” and “Ruby” left so hopefully Maddie and Marlee are not too disappointed.
