What a wonderful weekend...

It was a gloriously beautiful weekend in the Bluff Country. Sunshine and blue skies and temperatures in the 60's. About as close to perfect as it gets. We had company Saturday. Penny Picha and her husband and daughter drove down to see the lambs and select the ewe lambs that they will be taking home, later this summer. Penny chose "Wish" and "Lacey" for her little girls and put a deposit down for one of Alice's ram lambs if they're still available after the people in front of her make their choices. Penny's daughter, Nastia, is in love with the HST lambs and she and would have happily taken any of them home with her. She also totally fell in love with Rock Star. Here's a shot of the two of them....

I'd say Rocky rather liked Nastia too... ;-)

I have a question for those of you who are familiar with Shetland colors: I have two moorit ram lambs, this year, who look different than my moorits usually do. Instead of the even brown tone, all over their faces, these guys are lighter around the eyes and nose. They are NOT Ag (greying). They are definitely solid colored but lighter than my moorits usually are. Could this be Fawn? Or Mioget? How does one KNOW???? I have had modified lambs born here, in the past, so I know that we do have several sheep that carry the "modifier" gene. Anyone care to venture a guess? I'd appreciate any feedback! Here's one of the guys (Alice's son, "Hero").

  1. He sure looks like he could be mioget Nancy! Check his pouch as that is one of the first areas to lighten ... and let us know what colour it is!
