Meet the Ewe - RiverOaks Lucy

I decided this might be a good way to introduce you to all of my sheep :) I won't do ALL of my sheep at one time, but a few here and there. Since I have so many, its hard to talk about them all at any given time. They all deserve some time in the lime light :)

River Oaks Lucy S24813 (Click Reg # to see pedigree)

Gray Katmoget ewe, single, Born 4.20.2007

AbAa BBBb SSS?, 34% UK. Proven poll carrier. Carries moorit.

Thanks Becky for these two photos! I couldn't find any recent ones!
