Proof I still own sheep!


Beechtree Kiloran and Cross Wind Bea, my natural colored BFLs. Kiloran just today thought that I might be a good source of scratches...the eyes glazed over ;)

Minwawe Sea Breeze. She was bred to Jazz. She will be available for sale after her lamb is weaned. SALE PENDING

WhitePine Rush. She is a FirthofFifth Aman x RYL Rachildas, so F2 Orion. Aman is now living with Bill in Canada. She was bred to FirthofFifth Barish, my F1 Timothy.

Theresa had a blog about heads and ear sets. This photo shows three very different ear sets on three different patterns. I personally have seen a LOT of whites with this more upright ear set....is this typical? L to R WhitePine Sedalia out of Jazz x Minwawe Sterling. Sedalia is my softest, finest ewe from last year. She was bred to UndertheSon Apache, an F2 Orion) WhitePine Rush (see photo above for description) and Wintertime Galina out of Wintertime Black Forrest x Sheltering Pines Holy Grail. She was bred to Jazz.

Black Forest Tilly who was bred to UndertheSon Arapaho. She is out of Wintertime Black Forrest x FirthofFifth Twiling. I have her full sister from the first breeding Taika as well.

And humor me as I absolutely loved this girl the moment she was born.....more photos of WhitePine Sedalia. *sigh* I think she's a keeper...not only for her fleece, but her pattern (katmoget and spots!) AND she is structured wonderfully, although however more refined than most you'll see at the shows.

Sedalia is really pretty. I have always liked black and white sheep. I want to scratch her white forehead.

My white ewe certainly has the most up-angled ears in my little flock. Tilly's look pretty up-angled too, though.

Tentative breeding groups
