BFL fleece samples

I finally bribed my dad to help me take samples of the Shetland rams and all the BFLs. I've tried to take photos that do them justice, but with3x optical zoom they probably won't!

Below is Beechtree Mayburgh - White Yearling ewe. F3 Titus, F4/F5 Ebony Boy, F4/F5/F6 Laird, F5 Jamie, F5/F6 Loyalty.
Potosi Glamorgan - white yearling ewe. F2 CarryHouse V2, F4/F6 Laird, F4 EbonyBoy, F5 Jamie
Sheltering Pines Nubia - Yearling Natural Colored ewe. F3/F4/F4 Titus, F4 CarryHouse V2, F5/F5/F5 Ebony Boy, five times back to Loyalty, 13 times back to Laird, 4 times to Jamie. In other words....LOADS of UK :)

Garret,
I can't tell which ones are the shetland. Are these all BFL's, or are there some shetland rams in there?

If you havn't sent the fleece samples you were going to send will you put a BLF's in there. I'd like to see what they look in feel like in person.

Nubia, patosi, and clover were my favorite from the pictures.
