2016 Cross Lambs

Here are most of the 2016 Crossbred lambs.  I am taking reservations/deposits for these now.  If you are interested, please email me so I can put a hold on the lamb/s you are interested in.  Use the @ sign between my name and undertheson. 

theresa  (the @ sign) 

Lambs are sired by a BFL/Teeswater/Wensleydale/Shetland cross.  The mothers are all grade 2 in FFSSA, with fine, soft, crimpy fleeces.  Study the pictures to see which colors and fleece types you are interested in for the lambs.  Some are more crimpy fine and some are wavy fine and show characteristics leaning to one or more breeds (like topknots for Wensleydale/Teeswater and facial markings for Teeswater, or more purly crimp for BFL, etc).  All will have beautiful fleeces.  Rams can be wethered after a deposit is put down.
