A polled single katmoget ram lamb out of River Oaks Simone(moorit)and sired by Wintertime Grasshopper(polled spotted fawn katmoget). He has a smudge of white over his brows and is built like a little tank. Fleece is very nice. Simone had a yearling micron test of 22 AFD/4.4 SD/19.8 CV with a CEM of 7.9 and a comfort factor of 96.5. Grasshopper's yearling test is 21.4/4.1/19.2/CEM of 7.1 with a CF of 98.4. This little ram is for sale. $250 Winter Sky Marrakech X Winter Sky Khan black ewe lamb. Elegance with the finest fleece we've ever felt on a Shetland lamb. Her sire had a yearling test of 21.4 AFD/3.9 SD/18.4 CV with a CEM of 6.8 and a CF of 99.1. Dam's two year old test is 23.3/4.0/17.1/7.0 CEM with a CF of 96.6. She is being retained. (Photo at six hours old) Wintertime Black Forrest X V Creek Princess Buttercup twin katmoget lambs. Fawn katmoget ewe lamb and grey katmoget ram lamb with horns. Ram lamb is available.

Wintertime Grasshopper X Wintertime Chiffon--single smirsklet sokket fawn katmoget ewe lamb. Will be staying. Name pending. Born last night at 5 p.m.
The Sommarang Hansel X Wintertime Maple Sugar twin ewe lambs born a few days ago. Modified emsket? and mioget? with slight white markings on their heads.
This is Meghan's favorite "Snapple" who loves to come running to be scratched under her chin. She will be retained.

And this is "Tang" called because at birth she had fine hairs sticking up on her poll and when snuggled in a towel she resembled a baby Orangutan(sp?). She may be for sale. Clean polled lines on both sides of her pedigree.

Last but not least and born at 12:30 p.m. to a yearling River Oaks Simone...sired by Grasshopper...we have a clean polled fawn katmoget ram lamb who will be for sale. Beautiful fleece with a few white splashes on his face. Photo doesn't do this lamb justice.

This is what accumulates in a sheep barn in one month's time. Which is why we attempt to clean the barn down to the ground at least every six weeks throughout the winter and spring. We are now clean and ready to start building up a good layer for the first lambs of the season. Lambing jugs will be cleaned out as needed throughout the three weeks we expect lambs. So the barn is READY...
The Shetland ewe flock has had fleece samples taken...eyelids have been checked for any signs of anemia...udders are coming in and coats are snug...Hooves are trimmed....So our ewes are SET....

Stay tuned for GO.....
