Future flock sires
PS23 Fife (an F1 Orion out of SheepyHollow Sienna) This boy is probably the finest fleeced lamb I've produced and he is growing nicely. This boy is going to be getting a breeding group this fall.
Windwept Lime's ram lamb. He is a month younger than the other ram lambs. He is not able to be registered as I don't know who his sire is, but he is turning out nicely and is for sale for $100.
PS23 Fandango ( an F2 Greyling, F3 Orion) is a keeper as he is unrelated to most of my sheep and I like his fleece (which is much darker underneath) and his conformation a lot. He is out of Maureen Koch's WalnutRise Trevor who is a big ram so this guy might help improve the size of my sheep. I'm not going to use him this fall though.
PS23 Falkirk (an F1 Orion out of SheepyHollow Sienna) He is also very fine.
PS23 Fairlight (an F1 Jings F3 Holly/Greyling out of Sabbath Farm Fonteyn) His fleece is very fine and I really like is conformation. He is also getting a breeding group this fall.
PS23 Fetlar (an F1 Orion out of UnderTheSon Claremori) I'm not sure what to think about his horns/scurrs so I'll probably keep him overwinter and see how they grow before selling , using him or culling him. He is the least fine of these ram lambs, but his fleece is still nice. His fleece is more intermediate.
