Last but not least




Well here she is! My last Shetland of the year! Winter Sky Layla is an F1 horned mioget ewe lamb. She is out of Heights Orion x Underhill Loretta Lynn. Loretta is also a horned ewe and that is where the horns came from. She is quite a growthly lamb and nearly the same size as my yearling ewes already. She is quite breath taking when out in the pasture and very soft to the touch when up close and personal.

I think now that I have enough ewes to keep me going for quite a while :)

Wow, you've made a lot of sheepy acquisitions this year! If only I could get my two grey girls sold, I'd like to pick up another ewe lamb with polled genetics to keep Brava company during breeding season. Don't know if that will happen, though; I'm certainly not counting on it.

Beautiful farmhouse, too!

A breed I can't stay away from

its true I guess that I would be first known for the fine wooled Shetland Sheep that I have procured and traveled across the USA and UK to ...
