And yet another beautiful, moorit ram lamb! Shadow is out of Bluff Country Zest and has the refined, elegance that she stamps on her lambs. Notice his fine bone structure.
Moon Shadow is sired by Sheltering Pines Crescent Moon who did his job and improved Zest's tail (which is a tad on the long side). Shadow has a very correct, fluke shaped tail and his fleece is an exquisite, intermediate ~ leaning more toward the single-coated style ~ VERY soft, fine and nicely crimped!
I love the chiseled look to his head and the tapered muzzle. From the day he was born, (a HUGE single) I found him breathtakingly elegant.
Moon Shadow's horns are wide sweeping and perfectly symmetrical. I would like to see more wool on his poll although he's got plenty of it on his cheeks (just like his dam). Shadow is a half-brother to "Bluff Country Apocalypse" (my exquisite, home-bred, fawn/HST ram ~ now a flock sire producing show-quality lambs at Heather Ludlam's Windswept Farm) in Michigan. Shadow carries HST spotting genetics and WILL throw spots if bred to a spotted or spot carrying ewe.
Tomorrow I'll feature Moon Shadow's best buddy ~ Bluff Country White Night!
