"BLUFF COUNTRY BLING"
I think it's apparent that Zaria's modified genetics have transformed Moon's lovely moorit fleece into an exquisite MIOGET (soft, golden) fleece on their son!
And just Look At This Fleece...
Bling's dam, Zaria, does carry the "half-polled" gene (from her sire, Sheepy Hollow Zorro) and as a young lamb, I thought Bling might possibly be half-polled, as his horns were quite small and slow growing. However,
His horns have shown a remarkable growth spurt and are decidedly wider at the base now than they were last fall. I'm quite sure he will have lovely, wide sweeping horns. (but for those of you interested in breeding for polled rams, he might still be of value to your breeding goals....)
"Yup. He's a real cutie!"
Thank you for sharing that, Dreamer. We All value your opinion VERY highly!
