2012 lamb crop

We raised some nice lambs this year; these lambs are cross-bred Dorset-Suffolk breeding. They were born in May 2012 and weaned about 5-6 weeks later. They have always had alfalfa hay available in a self feeder. I have also fed them a small amount of cracked corn over the last 3-4 months. There was very little pasture available last summer due to the drought, so even though my lambs would usually have access to some pasture in my small orchard, that was not available this past summer.
