2022 Review

     2022 was a quiet year.  We had been preparing for Graeme’s retirement as of Sept 1, but some time before that it became apparent that the person we’d chosen to succeed him had sustained an injury that made it prudent to withdraw. Graeme graciously agreed to stay on another eight months after “retirement” on a slightly less than F/T basis while we reopened a search.  To make his life easier in early 2023, we ran the ewes with rams only for a short time, to abbreviate the lambing season.  In Feb 2023 we greeted nine lambs from seven ewes, with all three rams represented.

    Good news  is that we did find a worthy successor to Graeme.   Cameron Pedigo  in started mid-April and Graeme officially retired as of May 1.
