The sheep have been doing marvelous this summer despite the hotter than usual temperatures that have been here this summer. In their home land, Icelandic sheep typically deal with a summer time average temperature of 78 degrees, we have been having mid 90’s. I’m thankful that we don’t have a lot of humidity too! We have been supplementing lots of extra B vitamins in their water tanks everyday along with extra cobalt, selenium and copper. (Don’t worry, Icelandics need a lot more copper than most traditional sheep to stay healthy.)
Lambs have been growing quick and have a wonderful fleece on them already!
