The original Star Thrower flock consisted of 27 bred ewes and 12 ewe lambs. Our flock arrived in March, 2007 and our first lambs were born 1 month later. Since that time, we have had 6 more lambing seasons and today our flock numbers over 600 sheep and lambs. We leave the lambs with their dams for a minimum of 30 days and as long as 50 days before we wean the lambs and begin milking the ewes in early June. This way, the lambs are off to a great start and can continue to thrive on fresh grass and legume pastures once they are weaned. Icelandics are intelligent and social animals, excellent mothers and truly triple purpose... producing exceptional fleece, milk and meat.
