Well, I've been thinking since everyone else started posting their goals...And here's some thoughts I've come up with.
1. Healthy sheep!
We've been having some problems with pneumonia this year, but I want to make sure it doesn't come back. This spring, the sheep are getting a new pasture, and a complete overhaul of their pen (We got a skidsteer! woot!). The fence is getting some fixing, etc. I'm hoping for no lambing problems this year, and good healthy lambs!
I *NEED* a SUPER white ewe! Low numbers across the board...Carrying color is a plus. I've got a couple I'm looking at, and some prospects maybe after lambing, so hopefully that will come to pass this year. I have no white currently, so actually even a couple super white ewes would be nice...
3. Good sheepies...
This year, breeding to my gulmoget ram, Likei, who although has a low micron, is high in cv. I'm hoping to get a couple ram lambs this year to replace him...a gulkat would be nice...I think Gulkats are my favorite pattern :D I'm hoping for some spotted gulmoget lambs! I'm also purchasing some ewes that will greatly improve the conformation of my flock. Wish me luck!
Anyway, I'm tired, and that's all I can think of right now lol. I'm sure more will come to my mind later!

Well, today I started the Pound for Pound Challenge at work. They weigh us every week, and for every pound we lose, Walmart* Will donate $1 to the local food shelf....however, if we gain weight, we pay $1 for every pound! Incentive! woot! There are also lots of prizes along the way...so it should be fun! I weigh...*cough* 239.2 at the weigh in at 5 am this morning. I don't look it, that's for sure, but that's because I'm tall. Plus the weigh in was right after lunch, I"m normally more around 235. My goal is 170, that's about the weight I was in that picture Garrett posted of me today in his blog lol. But I'm going to the gym with a friend of mine for work to see what it's like and see if I'll be willing to do it every or every other day. Unfortunately, the physical therapy place is jerking my chain around with my therapy for my tendonitis in my shoulder. I call and ask one simple question..."Do you take payments?"...and that was 2 weeks, and 3 phone calls ago. Today one actually called me back, but I was away from the phone, and she didn't even answer my one, simple question! Grrr...so I won't be lifting too many weights until I get that arm in better shape, but I can at least walk on the treadmill and stuff rather than going outside! I have to buy walking/running shoes tonight at work so I'll be ready! Wish me luck!
