The final 2 samples were taken in September from ewe lambs

Sweet Pea: AFD 29.1  SD 8.6  CV 29.7  CEM 16.5  CF 61.6  SF 30.8 (this did surprise me!)
I just took samples from everyone last Sunday again and will post those when I get them back.
All my sheep are single coated with the exception of the two that I note above.
I have placed Solace in Sheltering Pines Bug's breeding group, and am more anxious than ever to see what the 2 of them will give me. 
I had a lovely lady come this evening and purchase OK Acres Victor, one of the twin ram lambs out of Velma and OK Acres Morgan, a white ewe lamb.  I was so pleased that someone was going to be able to use this wonderful little ram, if I didn't have 2 rams already, I would have kept him, so this was a great day.


  1. Some really nice numbers, Kelly! Solace and Bug....Mmmmmmmmm : ).

  2. Thanks, I was pretty pleased by Bailey's numbers also, she was one of the ewes I got from Juliann.


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
