Today the lambs got their bling – new earrings. Only one stud for both boys and girls. Ear tagging is a new process for us and it seemed to go well.
Here’s Linda with number 16.
And me with number 17. I went into the local farm store (Theisens) earlier in the week to get the tags and thought they were a bit pricey at $28.00 for 20 sheep/goat tags along with $26 for the applicator tool. I didn’t get them and checked our favorite fencing supply store, Premiere Fencing and was able to get 40 tags for $8 and the applicator tool for $9.00. So, what I would have paid $82 at Theisen’s, I got for $17 at Premiere.
