Little brown rams & Easter Lily

Remember Lily the orphan twin? She regards this mounting block as her little home, I swear. I had to get a snap so I'd always remember. When she was tinier, she slept UNDER it.

Handsome horned ram lamb and his polled cousin, Little Red Oak Ash.
I think Ash will be going to a breeder who wants polled rams; I'm afraid April's horned boy will go "on the truck" in a few weeks. Sigh.

Not a terribly flattering picture of Ash--

And here he is, wondering if he really wants to walk away.
He just wants to be petted, always.

Hi Gail, is that me you're talking about, or is someone else interested in Ash? I am still very much up in air on rams; I'd really like to see what I get out of Braveheart and Inky next spring. Other than that, I may hold out for a proven full-poll with fine fleece. But if you would be willing to send in a fleece sample to Texas A&M, the results may push me to consider Ash. Is he a moorit, fawn or musket (SO hard to tell sometimes from photos)?

Val,
thank you again for telling me how to sort my blog list! And I intend to go look at your spinners' blog.
Thanks for the sheepy compliments, too.
Michelle,
I sent you an email to talk about Ash. Sabrina's going to take him so his polled genes don't go to waste, and I'm trading for a ram of hers. I didn't want any bachelor rams overwintering here this year.

Hey Gail and Michelle,

I don't know what plans you may have considered beforehand...but I don't plan on butchering Ash after I use him this fall. So he may very well be available again next season if I am done with him. He might even be a proven ram by then and his second fleece micron would be available, Michelle. Just a thought.

Best to you both!
