Salicional has the most beautiful bluish gray fleece of any Katmoget that I've seen, AND she was bred to Wintertime Black Forrest.
Forrest's lambs seem to have a history of looking like they aren't nice, but then in about 4 months, they become fantastic, so the dog coat that the ewe lamb was born with is not concerning me overly much. (yet)
Salicional's spring micron results just came back for her: SD 24.4/SD 4.5/CV18.4/CEM7.8/SF23.3
I simply love the rich, dark gray that this ewe lamb has when you part her fleece and I'm hoping it stays this color.

I have one ewe left to lamb and I'm done for 2011. I'm hoping for a ewe, (aren't we all) current count is 10 ewes and 11 rams.
