Wintertime Thriller

This is Meghan's favorite polled ram lamb "Thriller". He was all slated to show at Michigan Fiber Festival this past weekend when he came down with a pretty harsh cough about two weeks ago. He eventually recovered with some antibiotics, but Meghan felt hauling him south was out of the question and opted to stay home and take care of the farm while I went to pick up some sheep for her.

Her plans are to use Thriller on a limited number of ewes this fall and take him to Jefferson for the AGM show next fall as a yearling. Until then photos will have to suffice, but they just don't do him justice. The photo below was taken just after his coat was taken off, so his fleece is somewhat flattened out.

Thriller from the back. And yes he does have a little ring of white around the tip of his tail.
