2011 has arrived.

Belated Happy New Year from Ranfurly Farm.  As you can see, winter has us in its grip and we have quite a bit of snow on the ground.  Temperatures have stayed between -10 ish and 0 for the most part so we have little to complain about and in fact are enjoying the change from summer's frantic pace. 

If you would like to check out current photos of the yearling rams, you can click on the Ranfurly Rams page.  It has taken a number of attempts to get pictures that are postable but I think that these will show the difference between last summer's shots at the bottom of the page and the present reasonably well!  

We are busily feeding and monitoring sheep at the moment.  Breeding seemed to go quite smoothly and I am quite excited about the prospect of lambs this spring from a son of Gigrin Red Kite named Kite Knighton that I purchased from Kelly Ward and brought home in early November.  The young lad was put immediately to work and seemed to know what he was supposed to be doing so fingers are crossed!
