Christmas II has arrived at White Pine Shetlands!

Chloe was one of the first three ewes I thought would lamb. Shasta and Cori are the other ones....
Chloe and her twin EWE lambs out of Jazz, the 87% UK ram out of Jericho. These girls are 59% UK bloodlines.

Light Grey Katmoget ewe lamb. She has tight crimpy fleece!


Dark Grey katmoget ewe lamb. Possibly emsket? More wavy fleece but I've seen these fleeces crimp up as they mature.
