Sabrina from Boston Lake came down today to get her two polled rams, WhitePine Parker, a button scur musket smirslet (Forrest x Peep), and WhitePine Arvada, a short scurred grey katmoget (Jazz x Meleng). We went over all of my fleeces from this year and she brought some samples of her own to share and compare. We also did the pedigree swap and looked at each others pedigree books. Very educational and fun for sure!
We then went outside to go over all the rams and ram lambs and she was very happy with her choices, she should be, they are NICE boys! We moved onto the ewe pen and she was able to see the Jazz and Barish offspring and the scurred black and scurred emsket ram lambs out of Barish. When I caught Silverthorne, the krunet burrit ewe lamb that is Ag, she had said something like "I've always liked her"....the rest gets really fuzzy but in the end she ended up taking her with also :)
Here Parker and Silvethorne are preparing for their ride home in the "North Country".
Arvada and Silverthorne can hardly contain their excitement!
I always enjoy Sabrina's company and like I told Becky and Kim and Gail V, I wish we all lived CLOSER! Come again anytime!
I'm excited to see what those babes of mine are going to produce for you!
