Then, I got lambing updates from the two farms I leant Forrest to last fall. Now I don't know: if I really want a spotted, polled ram, is this what Forrest carries? Or should I keep looking? It seems that what Forrest throws are bersugget or headsplashed spotted lambs, but not the spottedness I am after, which is harder to get. Here's a photo of what HALF of his 10 or so lambs looked like:
Friend Lori, holding one twin he produced out of her ewe, LittleRedOak Mallow, a moorit who has thrown HST lambs (white Head, Socks, Tail). Forrest, remember is musket-- and had white tracery on his face as a lamb.
This bersugget patterned lamb is also from Mallow.
Next, triplets he fathered from LRO Catnip, a wildly spotted moorit ewe (Mallow's twin! The wool looks tightly crimped.
And finally, a black lamb with white splashes out of LRO SunBear, a black ewe whose mom had even more white head splashes.
So, what do you all think of Forrest's potential? Piebald spotting is hard to find; polled rams are hard to find, and the two together are very few! I need one!
