Summer Sheep…

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!
