Sons of Wintertime Black Forrest and Wintertime Ruby--my daughter's favorite ram and ewe which both tested in the 21 range as two year olds mid-side. Two very different but very interesting ram prospects.



Several years ago I had the enormous pleasure of seeing the first yuglet katmoget in North America born on my farm--Skater Boy. One of his daughters was retained and her daughter produced a grey version this spring. In honor of his illustrious great-grandsire he has been christened Sk8ter Boi.

The very same year Skater Boy was born we had a moorit smirslet ram lamb born named Chrome. His granddaughter in our flock bred to an Orion F1 produced a very nice ram lamb with similar coloring this spring, so he was christened Kodachrome. Both these promising ram lambs will be used in our breeding program this fall.a>
