Non Shetland Ewes
My first three sheep consisted of these two below and the Shetland ewe Twin Springs Cotton Candy.
Spooky was the first sheep here in 2006 and she is a Border Cheviot. Spooky had a Shetland crossbred ewe lamb as a two year old, and twins...a ewe and ram as a three year old. She is bred to Bahama for more Shetland cross lambs. Her ram lamb last year, we wethered and kept for our own freezer and the meat is outstanding. She is bagging up already so it won't be long now. I am hoping for more ram lambs from her.
