Can You See It???

Do you see the likeness?

Do you know who this is?

I think she looks SO much like her dam...

I can see it in the way she carries herself.

I love her Arrogance!

I thought her fleece was going to be Shaela but it's apparent now that she's actually Emsket (Dusky, bluish grey).

I'll finish this post, later today. I want to see who knows who this lovely ewe is. She is bred to Hunter for late-April lambs...


  1. She looks like the sheep at the top of your "boring" post (which was definitely not boring!), or is that Hunter?

    Absolutely gorgeous colors.

  2. Without cheating and looking at old posts, is it Alice's daughter Destiny? She is beautiful.

  3. I don't know who she is, but she's lovely. I'll watch for the answer! What I would also like to know is where all the definitions are for the colors, like Emsket and Shaela and such. Do they also apply to Icelandics with the same colors? I have so much yet to learn...

  4. She does resemble Alice...

    Ditto to what Claire said about the definitions of the colors. I am very curious.

    Destiny, daughter of Zaria, I think... I would like to get a good look at that Emsket...

    Please e-mail me your off days and shearing schedule if you have it yet for April/early May.


  7. Yes! It's Destiny. Alice's daughter (shame on you Terry!) ;-)

    On the follow up post to this one, I did add links to sites with info about the colors and markings in Shetlands

    She's a beauty! I love those Shetland colors!

    Claire & Anonymous:
    Here are some websites you can find color definitions and pics for Emsket & Shaela:

    Even with all of that though, it can be tricky. I have a 2 year old ewe who I'm not sure about. She's either Iset or Shaela. She'll be sheared tomorrow, and I can poke through her fleece some more. If anyone out there visits my blog, she's on my recent post. Feel free to venture an opinion. :)
