Today is November 10, 2016. We have just finished breeding our 90 ewes therefore awaiting February - March lambs. Judah and Lacee are expecting. Litter should arrive in December 2016. Deposits for puppies are being taken now.
This past season was pretty good. We had 127 lambs to sell. We sold 61 ewe lambs to a man in Virginia and 60 ram lambs to a man in west Kentucky. We hope to have a productive 2017 lamb season.
We have made some additions to the flock with 3 new rams. Max is 2 from Alabama, Cisco is a March 2016 Ram Lamb that we bought at the Katahdin Expo in Cookeville this year from Carl Ginapp of Iowa.
Coming up in Sept.-October new litters of puppies. Place your name on the waiting list now.
Also new lambs should be arriving in Sept.-Oct. as well.
Currently we have 2 registered ram lambs for sale. They were January born.
Call Sherri for info regarding them. 423-921-2485
We have 1 commercial ram lamb for sale as well.
Everyone is doing well at this time. Two puppies we kept from the February litter are doing well. They are learning the livestock guardian way from their parents.
Its been awhile since I have written anything on our blog.
We've been pretty busy since the end of December. Our lambs started coming December 22. We now have 56 lambs on the ground. We are so thankful for them.
Everyone seems to be doing well. The ewes did a great job this year.
February 10 and 12 , we had our first puppies on the farm.
Mikala's Christina had 9 beautiful puppies, 5 males 4 females.
Triple B Lacee had 8 beautiful puppies, 3 males, 5 females.
All seem to be doing well even though we had some very low temperatures.
Its been awhile since I have posted anything. So here's an update of whats going on here at Triple B.
We added New Zealand Rabbits in March of this year. At the present we have 28 does and 2 New Zealand Bucks, one California Buck and one Champagne Buck.
We will begin breeding all the does in January in hopes of lots of bunnies available April.
We have 46 breed ewes ready to begin lambing at the end of this month. At present everyone looks in good condition.
We are running our male Anatolian with our females in hopes of some puppies at the first of the year as well.
Shepherdess Sherri: Hi! Everyone. We had a successful first lambing. Total lambs 57. We currently have 31 ram lambs for sale and 24 ewe lambs. They were born March/April 2014. We would love to keep our ewe lambs but we currently do not have enough pasture to contain them.
Our dogs have done very well for their first year.
We have had an enjoyable time working with our Ewe Mamas and their lambs.
Looking forward to next lambing season.
Lord bless you
Things here on the farm are going well. We have 16 lambs so far in the first week of lambing. There are four sets of twins, which leaves 8 singles.
The mama's have proven to be good so far. I have wanted to assist them but they have delivered unassisted thus far. We have 37 more mama's to go. With the Lord's help maybe they will deliver unassisted as well. The mama's have been good mothers.
Our dogs have been gentle and willing to learn as well.
Christina is my licker. She mulls thru everyone licking and bonding with the lambs.

Just an update about the farm.
We had our first lambs born February 12, 2014. Mother and lambs are doing well.
Now we are getting ready for the next flow of lambs to be born starting mid-March thru April. Many of the ewes look well and ready. Just hope I am!
Looking forward to what lies ahead.
Dogs are doing well but since they are young I am still concerned about the well fare of the lambs until I can trust them fully. They seem to do well around these first 2 lambs.
Hi! again It's almost time to put our rams in with our ewes. Mid-October we plan to sort our ewes and place them with our rams. My dogs are doing well. They are now 4 and 5 months old. Growing, growing , growing is about all I can say about them.
I just added 8 dominiquer chicks to the flock. They are young so it will be a couple of months before they begin laying farm fresh eggs. I had to add a new rooster. My other one died, so I replaced him with a dominiquer.
Looking forward to what lies ahead when winter comes and lambing season begins in March and April.
We are Triple B Farms in Bulls Gap, TN. (The home of Archie Campbell) July 2013 we bought our first Katahdin/Dorper Sheep of 27. In August we bought 20 more Katahdin. We now have a total of 47 commercial katahdin sheep.
We also purchased 3 female Anatolian Shepherd CKC registered livestock guard dogs in June. These are young dogs but are with the sheep at all times and are doing well.
In July, we purchased an AKC male Anatolian to add to our livestock dog operation.
Presently our dogs are with the sheep and chickens.
