Lambs

A few photos of a couple lambs I was able to stalk this evening :)
This is WhitePine Columbine, a Jazz x Cori daughter who is one of my bottle lambs. The other one is in her new home just down the road with her favorite 8 year old girl! She is going to be used in 4H and I'm excited about that!
WinterSky Layla (F1 Orion) and her son WhitePine Longmont. He was my only moorit ram this year and he is going to be turning into that mioget color as well! He may have to be kept!
WhitePine Romeo is a Barish x Rahu son, so he is an F2 Timothy. Jet black color, loads of crimp and he is going to have tiny scurs on his head as he carries the poll gene! He is available for sale.
WhitePine Slater is the smirslet flecket grey katmoget and some patterns I can't describe (like incomplete sokkets, a near yuglet, but having black nose and ears etc). He is just so dang cute and he's the youngest lamb by about 2 weeks here...Today he was trying to get the older more 'mature' lambs to lamb race but it was just too hot to do that. He is going to live with Rayna at NorthStar Shetlands.
White Pine Rush, my little white ewe lamb out of Aman (F1 Orion) and Rachildas. She is so even and crimpy I can't wait to see what she produces! Her brother is the bersugget and he is going to also be a scurred boy, as he got the poll gene from his dad via his grandma's line (Wintersky Sandstone)

I can't believe how fast they are all growing up!

There are indeed a bunch of good lookin' lambs on this post, Garrett! See what happens when I get busy chasing kittens all over? I'll missed it by that much...

Sorry I've been lax about stopping in...between kittens, weaning lambs, (and finding out we've got some polled genetics here at Sheep Thrills) and finding out about the Grandbaby coming in Dec. I don't know if I'm 'afoot or on horseback"!

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 ...
