As you know we got 2 lambs in the spring ,well there time came to be taken for meat on sunday. the care in feeding payed off as we fed creep .a mollases barley corn mix to them all through thier time . i wieghed them about 2 months ago and they topped the scales at 113 lbs and 107 lbs respectivly ,after dressing out they now come in at 80lbs each give or take an ounce or two. they will be cut up friday after hanging for 5 days .if the weather holds cold we may hang them a bit longer. anyways here are a  couple of pics
