A few new sheep photos


Here is Meleng and yearling daughter Skor grazing along peacefully. They are both shaela. Meleng and Skor are my two softest ewes on the farm.

The polled musket boy in the middle is Parker. He is going to his new home at Boston Lake in the next couple of weeks. Very uniform and crimpy and soft!

The grey katmoget on the right is Rye, who is going to live at Sheltering Pines. Her mother, Rooibos is on the left.



The last two photos are of Lyons, my F2 Jericho, F3 Jamie black/going shaela ram. He has the most beautiful horns and I really like him....conformationally, crimpiness, softness, color, disposition, everything. If he doesn't sell, I plan on keeping him and breeding him to a few select ewes this fall.

Thanks so much for the photo of Parker. He's looking so good! So POLLED! Yay!

So Garrett, surely you could find some dog shows on the West Coast to enter, and bring along a poll-carrier ewe for me? You Midwesterns are hogging all the pollies!

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 ...
