Black krunet ewe lamb. Fallon has nice conformation with a larger build, intermediate fleece and good tail. She has always been a clown, very sweet and friendly. Fallon is still for sale $200.
Slightly larger Leeny
Now for the boys.
Below-This is Oliver. (Thistle Keep Teleus Longtail x Sommarang Effrem). Oliver has turned out to be a handsome boy with great fleece. Oliver is now wethered and will be making his home in Missouri with Briannah.
Below-Dillon (twin to Oliver). Dillon is also a wether. He actually has beautiful, square conformation, a tiny tail, and has awesome, soft, black fleece, but he has small scurs ( horns) and I haven't had much luck selling scurred rams, so he was wethered and is still available as a fiber pet. $75 Very sweet boy. Dillon... leaning on the fence.
Below-Broderick (Sommarang Daisy x Sommarang Effrem) 'Brody' is a gorgeous black, smirslet, sokket, ram lamb.
I think the appropriate shorthand would be written as HsT (since he only has 2 socks....Nancy?)
Big Broderick..or Spartacus, as my kids call him...helmet and chin strap, I guess.
Nice bum, eh?
Next, sadly, we have disappointing yearling rams :-(.
Here are some yearling rams that I held over to watch their development. Unfortunately, I had some horn issues last year and was disappointed in how these boys turned out.
No, I am not going to hide my 'mistake sheep'... everyone has some, though you may not always see them. After all, genetics are a funny thing, haven't you ever been at a family reunion and thought...seriously, am I related to these people? Really? We have the same genetics? Are you kidding me?
And this teeny, tiny, tail...
Below-Crosswinds Apollo ( SheepyHollow Red Trillium x Bluff Country Rock Star)
Really nice moorit flecket yearling ram. Very nice conformation and great tail, with fleece almost as awesome as his sire's. Apollo's Sire, Rocky, has TO DIE FOR Fleece, and Apollo's comes pretty close. Unfortunately, his D profile horns are really tight. If anyone has a use for one of these wonky horned boys (wether? Cross-breeding?) email me.
You will notice in my earlier post that I purchased a ram lamb for my future flock sire that looks like he will have really wide horns....if that doesn't work I may have to get a ram from Juliann, dammit! LOL. She raises polled Shetlands (no horns). Obviously, I need to take a better look at some of my ewes' horn genetics as well, since these two boys' sires are completely unrelated.
Ewes still for sale.
Crosswinds Sophia (Thistle Keep SageBrush Vole x Underhill Gulliver AI), F2 Dillon. Nice, bigger yearling ewe with great conformation and tail. Nice wool on cheeks and poll. She has tiny horn buds that grow about 1/4" and then break off. More of a double coated fleece $200. Very sweet and friendly.
SheepyHollow Red Trillium ( Sommarang Claire x WVF McGyver). Two year old moorit Flecket ewe. Nice conformation and tail, beautiful, soft, crimpy shorter staple length fleece. Wonderful mother, no lambing problems. $200. Not a particularly friendly ewe, but not wild, by any means. This picture was taken in the rain, so her fleece is a bit soggy. As always, I am willing to negotiate prices if my sheepies are going to good homes.
So there you have it, I have some really nice sheep...and some that have issues. As with most breeders, I am always working on improving my flock by adding genetics that will help correct any perceived problems....I can't do anything about anyone's family reunion though...
