I wanted to post about all of my ewe lambs, but I could not get Sian's black daughter, Jane, to pose for any photos. Here are the other three ewe lambs...
Justina (Courante x Hannah)
My only Courante ewe lamb...but she proved that Courante carries solid, so I'm pleased. Justina carries moorit and spots - as evidenced by her tiny white head spot at birth. She is twin to Trans Am (Mr Spotty). Justina is also the lamb I thought might be modified. She still has an odd black color compared to the other black ewe lambs, but I can't see any color change at the base of her fleece. So maybe not. This little girl is super friendly like her dam. :)
Penelope (Ash x Lana) (left), Trans Am (right)
Penelope and Justina look a lot alike. I need to get ear tags into them soon. However there are some differences... Penelope's poll wool comes down to a point on her forehead while Justina's is an oval shape. Penelope is also skittish like her dam and won't come up to me yet. I'm tempted to wean her at the end of summer in a barn stall for a few days to tame her down. Having friendly sheep is so much more convenient than having skittish sheep. This little girl is lovely in every way. Perfect tail, great conformation, and the genetics and promise of great fleece. So glad she is in my flock.
