Goals: Some repeat breedings that produced very nice lambs this year. Coolea (1st place as ewe lamb at WSWF) and Tono Brea are different lines so hoping they produce nicely too.
White - Mascarpone (repeat breeding, kept her white ewe lamb and her ram lamb is top notch)
Moorit - Cascade (repeat breeding which produced 2017 WSWF Res Sup Champ UTS Calvin Klein and his twin brother Captain - probably the best ram lamb of this year's crop)
Grey Kat - S'more Tanz (repeat breeding, produced Patches, a spotted keeper ewe lamb)
Fawn kat - Coolea
White - Tono Brea
Grey kat, B/b, krunet, med/lt grey color in fleece, silky
Black/shaela - Meredith Blue (repeat breeding, which produced Mack)
Grey - Kivalina
Grey kat - Sekka
Light moorit - Navara
Spotted Grey, B/b
Black - Tacoosh (2016 WSWF Champ Ewe)
White - Fancy
Moorit - Brandywine
Grey kat - Manistique
Grey kat - Merrimac
Fawn kat - Topaz
UTS El Paso
Goals: El Paso is a Cleggan great grandson. Modified from his mother's and sire's mother's side, so should get some modified lambs. Hoping he carries moorit. I've been waiting to use a ram from his mother for quite awhile. So pleased that this guy has wide horns, strong structure with fine bone, and a fine, crimpy, dense fleece. He is staying on the farm.
Black - Moxahala
Light moorit - Cherra
Black - Arroyo
Dark mioget - Galena
Light mioget - Mingay
Fawn - Sirene
Black smirslet ram lamb
Goals: Spots! Chrome is a top notch structured and typey ram with a rear that is very strong. Package that with a dense, fine, crimpy fleece and pleasing spots - on a horned ram - and you have a quite a ram. Ceann, Chrome's mother, is a silky fleeced rooer so hope he passes that to his lambs.
Grey kat - Darby
White - Juma
Grey - Colla
Grey kat - S'More Tocatta
Grey smirslet kat - Talledega
White (hiding behind Talle) - Markoti
It was hard deciding who to put with the cross ram, but some ewes had to go here. Nine ewes are in this group so there will be several very nice fleeced cross lambs available, if you are looking for spinner's pets or commercial ewe producers. BFL/Shetland crosses are calmer than Shetlands, bigger but not too big, with a fabulous fleece. The ewes cross well with Texels or other commercial breeds to make market lambs and can lamb at a year old.
This is the BFL cross ram and he is for sale as of Dec 10, 2017
Nice, fine, crimpy, soft fleece.
