God doesn't want me to have gulmogets!

Well Tilly lambed tonight.

As you may have guessed from the title, she didn't give me my moorit gulmoget ewe lamb :( But she did give me a EWE at least!! :) :) :) :D :D

But it is solid black!!. She was bred to UnderTheSon Arapaho an F2 Orion so she does carry moorit, and her fleece is very even and crimpy so that looks promising. But come ON!!!

Of the three gulmoget ewes i have:

Galina gave me a black krunet ram lamb

Taika gave me a gray katmoget ewe lamb

Tilly gave me a black ewe lamb

what are the odds? Well yes, 50:50 chance but for all three? Maybe some things are just not meant to happen!!

Photos tomorrow

No, no, God's just telling you to BUY gulmogets! Rayna looks to have more than her share.... ;-)

LOL, poor you Garrett! There's always next year and, as Michelle said, there seem to be plenty in other camps. At least you've got ewes lambs... sigh!

Hehehe, I like Michelle's way of thinking ;-) At least I know they're close by then ;-) LOL I still feel SO bad G...But look at fleece quality...I would kill to have a flock as soft as yours. I mean, I'm working my way there, but You've still got a ways on me. And hey, if you don't want that grey kat lamb out of Taika.... ;-) LOL I LOVE your sheep, even the black krunets! ;-)

Yes, Michelle is right, there's always next year to look forward to. I didn't get the moorit gulmoget I was hoping for either (Harrison must be homozygous black), but I'm looking ahead to using the BB/Bb poll carrier ewe lambs.

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 ...
