LAMBING UPDATE

Twix is a single ewe lamb sired by Wintertime Barqs and out of Fairview Farm Sweet Tart. She is a love with a funny smoosh of white on her poll and a friendly personality just like her sire. She is being retained.
Wintertime Black Forrest X Wintertime Ruby single black horned ram lamb with a little bit of white on his poll. Blanket was a disappointment at first,but we are finding him catching our eye more and more and his fleece looks like it will be very fine indeed. Being held for evaluation at least until July.
Wintertime Barqs X Wintertime Ladybug moorit/white flecket horned ram lamb. Hasn't found his name yet, but he'll be staying for a time as well. I need a really nice white fleece for my fiber business and he is definitely white. Ladybug is for sale since we are keeping her son for now. Ask for details and current fleece samples.
Tang in the background is sold. Her sister Snapple in the foreground is being retained for now. Sire is Sommarang Hansel(polled modified grey gulmoget)and dam is Wintertime Maple Sugar.
River Oaks Simone and her son Wintertime Simon who is going to lower MI mid-May. Simone is being retained for now.
Our only NCWGA lamb but a definite greeter sheep and keeper--Tippy. Sire is Winter Sky Khan and dam is Winter Sky Kir Royale. Kir is heading to a new fiber home in July.
Wintertime Chiffon's daughter Vanity Fair. Sire is Wintertime Grasshopper. Vanity is staying put. Her sire will be used much more this upcoming fall and then will be for sale mid-November. We will also be selling Winter Sky Khaya for anyone interested in a very good brood ewe for polled and smirslet animals. She has produced HST, smirslet, moorit and dark brown animals with extraordinarily nice fleeces. Khan is her son. Fleece samples are available to interested parties.

Lovely lambs. I'd keep them too. (grin)

How much are you asking for Khaya?

Voni said...

Do you have a picture of Khaya somewhere on your blog?

Sorry Michelle. Khaya has triplets to feed for a while this summer and wouldn't be ready to move anytime in June.
