 Wintertime Twix--Moorit gulmoget two year old ewe sired by Wintertime Barqs and out of Farview Farm Sweet Tart.  Another sweet ewe with excellent type.  Not as milky as we would like but her first lamb died early from urinary blockage, so this may have had an impact on her.  $250 OBO.  SOLD.

 Wintertime Kashmir(Wintertime Black Forrest X Winter Sky Khaya)--Two year old ewe.  Dam of Katniss...carries spots.
 Wintertime Vanity Fair--Two year old spotted fawn katmoget daughter of Wintertime Grasshopper out of Wintertime Chiffon. 
 Eweshaveit Kate--Winter Sky Buster II X Winter Sky Kinsey--linebred on Tennyson.  This will be her first lambing and it is eagerly anticipated.
 Sheltrgpines Mustang Sally--Wintertime Blues X Sheltrgpines Salicional dark grey katmoget three year old who roos(obviously).  Always has nice large lambs despite her short stature.  A fiercesome mother.
Wintertime Anime--Wintertime Waterbug X Wintertime Alanis spotted grey.  Last year this breeding produced the lovely Angry Bird shown below.  Bird is bred to B.o.B. who is an Alanis son for a linebreeding on one of our favorite ewe lines. 


 Twin ewe lambs out of Wintertime Alanis sired by Wintertime Boer Goat.  The moorit smirslet is Florence.  The black(may be modified)blettet is Kree.  Both will be staying on the farm with their dam for the forseeable future.  They were waiting for me in the barn on Easter morning.  Better than chocolate bunnies and jelly beans I would say!
 On Tuesday just after I left for town Meghan discovered Danube in front of the barn with this lovely grey kat ram lamb(some spotting on his face).  His sire is B.o.B. who is a solid black Alanis son.  Beautiful fleece and overall look on this young fellow and both of his parents tested in the low 20's with their first fleeces.  He has horns and will be for sale if he develops nicely.  His name is Thames.
 The first to lamb this season was Katniss(a very nice yearling krunet with a 21 micron fleece).  She was bred to BoB and had a mini-me daughter we have named Prim.  Prim is super friendly already and crouches or lays down when scratched.  Mom was a little over enthusiastic and nipped the end of Prim's tail off, but we believe it probably had a white tip just like her dam's.  Katniss is for sale.  Prim may be as well.  We shall see what the rest of our lambing season brings us.
