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.


  1. They are all so handsome. Enjoyed your blog.

  2. Nice looking rams. Looks like you have a very nice katmoget yourself! Thanks for visiting.

  3. Fandango's coloring looks a lot like one of our lambs this year - VERY DARK brown underneath, VERY DARK brown head, a spot on the back, which is fading - katmoget. Of course, his mom is dark brown, so that might explain it - but the rest of our kats are moorit or fawn - or maybe musket? Some of the colors still confuse me!

  4. Looove that F1 Orion! Would happen to be interested in trading for anything, would ya? :D

  5. Nice rams! Katmoget coloring is a favorite of mine.

  6. Thanks!

    Rayna, the Orion boy may be spoken for, but if he comes available I'll let you know.

    Lael,Fawn Katmgogets keep their dark belly and the musket (and light grey)ones bellies' fade out.
