A few photos of Wintertime B.o.B.'s breeding group as he is busy and doesn't want to be disturbed by a stalking camera person.  This is Alanis(black), Madrid(Ag grey)and Morocco(Musket).  Morocco and Madrid won 1st and 2nd and GCH and RGCH fleece at WI Sheep & Wool under Gillian Wakeling this fall.  B.o.B.'s fleece won the rooed class and GCH as well.  Hoping for some lovely lambs with outstanding fiber from these crosses. 
Winter Sky Mandalay(Reserve Supreme CH at WI Sheep & Wool under Maurice Wakeling this fall)on the left.  Mustang Sally in the middle and B.o.B. on the right.
River Oaks Maya(emsket gulmoget two year old)and Wintertime Kashmir(third place fleece at WI Sheep & Wool and aunt to B.o.B.).
The patriarch of our flock--Wintertime Ruby--six years old and still holding a beautifully soft fleece.

No we just aren't using any ram lambs this fall. Have four growing up in the other barn which used to house Meghan's goats. He still doesn't like our other ram lambs but he is hale and hearty.

Hello, we are new to the Shetland Sheep world. We have two, and are falling in love with these sheep. Can you tell me why you coat your sheep? I have read different things on this subject. We live in Colorado also.
Thanks so so much,
