Well hey, those sheep were so calm today when I went out to do chores, they just stood there for pictures! Jane Eager wanted to see a picture of her Highland Hollows Bluebell, so here she is, the grand dame. She is a BIG girl, with masses of crimpy, soft, white fleece I've always thought I should try to get more of in my flock. Her first daughter's is straight as a stick (though just as thick as Bluebells's).
The next year's offspring were twin boys-- both with nice, thick, crimpy gray fleece. One had a too long tail and is history; the other wins a little harem for this fall's breeding program.
Interesting, here are the two Little Red Oak rams being used this year: Bluebell's son, Mullein, and my Amy's son Alex. Mullein is all about fleece, Alex is all about horns and spots. Can you see the big difference in these guys' fleece?
I'm sure they will each have wonderful babies, just very different.(Remember, you can click on photos to see them up close).
Have a great Thursday.
