Wintertime ?--Single fawn katmoget polled ram lamb sired by Wintertime Grasshopper and out of River Oaks Simone. SOLD pending receipt of deposit. Breeding will be repeated next fall.
The newest ewe lamb on the farm(we've had 14 so far out of 19 lambs). A single dark brown darling sired by Wintertime Barqs and out of Wintertime Lizzie. She may be for sale.

We have just six more ewes to lamb and then we are done. The count so far is 19 Shetland lambs--5 ram lambs and 14 ewe lambs. Of those we've been ecstatic about 90 % of the fleeces and overall conformation. Stay tuned for the final lambs of the season.
