Meet the ewe - ShelteringPines Nirvana

ShelteringPines Nirvana - S25999

Gray Katmoget , horned, 36.5% UK, twin born 3.23.07

AbAa, BBBb, SSSs,

Above and below is Nirvana. The one below is her with her twin katmoget girls out of Wintertime Blues ;)
Below is her 2009 micron report. She is not my finest ewe, but very improvable. Her twin girls out of Blues were nearly identical with their fall microns and I'm very pleased with them!

As is normal with Sheltering Pines stock, they are conformationally wonderful and their fleeces are very consistent with little britch. She proved her keep with the Jericho lambs so will be bred to Heights Orion this fall in hopes of some solid lambs, preferably ewes :)
