I had a fellow Shetland breeder inquire about one of my ram lambs yesterday and I gathered the boys to get photos and fleece shots, I found this..........
|Pearl Jam's fleece is mioget! And I thought I had another moorit boy. |

Pearl Jam (PJ) is a Lil' Country Bee Sting X Sheltering Pines Bug ram lamb that was born about a month later than the rest of the lambs. Bee Sting was exposed to Bug about 1 month later than my flock at Juliann's house during the month of December. (she was leasing Bug) She was only with him about 2 weeks, so the neither of us were really expecting to see a lamb from the exposure, but true to Bug's hyperactive tendencies, he got the job done. He's smaller than the other rams, but he sure doesn't take any crap from any of them, and he's turning out to be a really awesome little ram, I am looking forward to watching him mature because he just keeps getting better.
Lovely color, abundance of fine organized crimp and nice staple length and virtually nothing on his head for horn growth. Now let's hope the little guy will roo in the spring too.
|Shows his lack of horns.......just itsy bitsy chips. |
Beautiful! Good job Bug!ReplyDelete

Good Heavens, that is a gorgeous fleece!! Now I'm scratching my head trying to figure out where the mioget came from?ReplyDelete
Does that mean he is no longer for sale?ReplyDelete
