a few parting photos

Before my big trip that I'll be gone for I wanted to share a few photos of black based lambs...Too many times buyers overlook them just because they are black. A big pity!

Above we have F1 Jamie on the left named WhitePine Levi. He "may" be going to Oregon for a fall of courting some ladies..... On the right is White Pine Reuben. He is slated to be going to Pennsylvania to court some ladies there as well!

Below, Reuben and his mom Rahu.
Isn't he just breathtaking?!! :)
Below is WhitePine Terah out of Black Forrest Tilly and UnderTheSon Arapaho.

All three lambs carry moorit, and Levi carries spots to boot! Terah is staying here for the time being. She is just beautiful.

My goodness you're fast! That IS a very nice-looking rear view on Levi . . . we'll see what happens!

Garrett you turkey. You didn't tell me you were selling Levi, lol!
Those are some mighty fine lambs.

Have fun on your trip, see you at MFF! We are going to leave Allegan like a dishrag. Woohoo!

I didn't realize that Jamison carried the polled gene? I've known decendets of Jamison that were polled, but they were also comming from polled carrying ewes, so I was unsure if Jamison actully had polled or not.

Jamison is one of the boys that I didn't get a chance to use. I saw some of his desendets that I really liked. Your Levi is one of the ones that seems to have nicked well.

Hi Susan.

I don't think Jamie does carry the poll gene as it is a dominant trait. Levi's mother, Lucy is down from Roban Dillon who is a proven poll carrier producer (he was the gul/kat that was collected and brought over in like 2004 or 2005.

I wasn't expecting a smooth polled ram out of Jamie either but that ewe is now a proven poll carrier producer as well :)

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 ...
