Wintertime Anime is a twin ewe lamb sired by Wintertime Waterbug and out of Wintertime Alanis. Both her parents had lovely micron tests as lambs, but she does have a paternal granddam whose fleece shifted so much from first to second shearing she was culled. It would appear this trait appeared once again in this particular lamb. Since she is very square and solid and has a nice personality we are exposing her to our best fleeced ram lamb to see what will happen.
Just to show that photos don't mean much...this looks like a dynamite fleece for a lamb...high luster, great lock structure, beautiful crimp and density. However, if you had your hands on this animal you would find she is very average. That is why we always make it a point to send fleece samples to prospective buyers and base our prices on the actual value of the animal to us. We will be posting our actual pairings once breeding season is over. If there is a particular cross or color or bloodline you are interested in please let us know, so we can put you on our waiting list. We always strive to match the right animal to each and every breeder we sell to.

No smoke or mirrors or reams of adjectives to describe this ewe lamb we are retaining and test breeding this fall. Her name is Winter Sky Kashi. She is a triplet daughter of Wintertime Black Forrest and out of Winter Sky Khaya. We will be testing her fleece in February as we do every year with our flock. Stay tuned.
