Fiber starter flock!

This would be a nice pair for someone wanting fiber animals. The ram lamb can be wethered before leaving if someone would just like a pair of fiber animals not for breeding as well. The ram lamb is a grey katmoget, 5/8 Shetland 3/8 BFL, out of Thor and Diamond (See microns on previous post), and the ewe lamb is a 1/2 Shetland 1/2 Babydoll out of Babydoll & White Pine Philemon AI, who was modified, so who knows what colors are lurking beneath that white! :) The ewe microned at 21 something, and has very nice fleece. A little more open like the babydoll, but still very crimpy and lovely.

He is a beautiful boy! Pictured here with momma. I'll have to find photos of the babydoll ewe, or take new ones, I can't find any at the moment! hehehe

Found some photos from last year on this blog post

Very interesting to see the micron tests. You are teaching me about sheep! You could spin up a lot of sweaters!
