Sugar Frosted Moorit Lamb

This is Winter Sky Anya. She was born dark brown with no white markings, but this fall I started seeing some "dustiness" behind her left ear and as the season progressed so did the white areas. She now has white down onto her cheek, around her ear, over her eye and down the lefthand side of her nose. I am not quite sure what is happening, but I do know her sire produced some animals that developed white spots or other markings over time. Some people call them "moonspots". Anya is bred to Tennyson for an early May lamb.

Gorgeous ewe lamb Karen. And very interesting to hear about the white frost. Am betting it's related to the "moon spotting" thing. Photo is very cool. Would be great on a calendar.
