49 days and 55 pounds

GOTCHA! You thought it was a weight loss thing, right?! Ha! This is Harold, Briar's market lamb. The top picture was taken at 14 days and the bottom at 49 days. His birth weight was 10 pounds so he has gained45 pounds in 49 days for a rate of gain of just under a pound a day. She hasn't worked with him much since it's been so muddy so he doesn't stack out as nice as the first picture. He is a nice lamb though. Nice topline, excellent bone, good spring of rib. I expect he will make a nice market lamb.
