Partial Breeding Group list

Well I have my AI group of girls ready:

Justalit'l Shasta Ag/Aa horned smirslet flecket F3 Gordon
Justalit'l Chloe Ab/Ab fawn katmoget F2 Minder
Justalit'l Black Lambo Aa/Aa Black F3 Holly F3 Timothy
BonoCreek Lavender Brown Aa/Aa fawn F2/F3 Jamie
FirthofFifth Rooibos Aa/Aa fawn 25% UK
FirthofFifth Evidence of Autumn Aa/Aa fawn F3Holly F3 Jamie
FirthofFifth Booto Ab/Aa Fawn Katmoget F1 Timothy
River Oaks Lucy Ab/Aa Grey Katmoget F3 Dillon F3 Holly
River Oaks Eliza Awt/Aa White 18% UK
RYL Rachildas Awt/Ag white illget F3 Lightning
Underhill Peep Ag/Aa musket F2 Greyling, F2 Jamie
Underhill Ulla Aa/Aa moorit F2 Jamie

I'm planning on using a mix of Orion, Timothy, Holly, Jamie, Minder and Lightning. I was unable to secure any Jericho or Greyling.

My F1 Jericho F2 Drum Ram F3 Drum Jings grey katmoget ram, Wintertime Jazz will have 9 ewes:
Wintersky Layla horned Aa/Aa mioget F1 Orion F3 Timothy
Wintertime Galina At/Aa black gulmoget F3 Dillon
ShelteringPines Myra Ab/Aa smirslet grey katmoget
ShelteringPines Fleur de Lis Ab/Aa smirslet grey katmoget F3/F3 Minder
Minwawe Sterling Aa/Aa black krunet
Minwawe Dixie Cup Aa/Aa shaela smirslet
Minwawe SeaBreeze Aa/Aa moorit smirslet sokket
Minawe Flopsy Aa/Aa moorit
ShelteringPines Snow Cloud Ab/Aa grey katmoget (this is Suzanne Nevada's ewe)

That leaves 13 ewes/ewe lambs that I would like to breed this year to five rams. That means 2 or 3 ewes per ram. And it makes sensce fleece, pedigree, color wise, but physical labor wise its silly!

I'm hoping the micron reports will help decide who I use and where the ewes should be placed because right now I'm torn between a few rams to put them with. Stay tuned!

If you have somehow acquired Miss Lucy of River Oaks, you are one lucky shepherd. She's a prize! Congratulations. :0)

You really ARE terribly organized. (grin)

Available sheep

With my work load continuing to pile up, and less time to spend with the sheep, I am offering the following: My entire flock of BlueFaced ...
