FirthofFifth Jasmine Phoenix

Last year Jasmine as a yearling twinned for me. I was truly expecting twins again this year! Instead she produced a 7 pound grey katmoget ewe lamb for me out of Heath my homegrown moorit (who by the way came back an amazing 18.9 AFD on his yearling fleece!!)

Jasmine is Ag/Ab and can only give me muskets/greys or katmogets. This little girl is sure a cutie! Her name is WhitePine Julesburg, sticking with the Colorado cities name theme this year!

I'm almost at the half way point! ( I know!! I've been lambing since March 30th...you'd think I'd be done by now!) I also do not think all of my yearling girls are bred...they are just too tiny, unless they cycled late... I left Jazz in with ALL the girls after breeding season just in case one was late...so I 'could' have lambs all the way until June 6th....that seems so far away!
