Edit to last post...

I might give Patches one adult ewe and the largest ewe lamb.  I don't think I will use Stormy this year but he will have a large group next year.  Champ is still for sale, available for pick up after Novemeber 21st.  Make an offer if you want to try out some polled genetics...he is a half poll.  I was asking $200 but will consider all reasonable offers. Patches and Storm picutred below:

2010 Flock Sires

These are the rams I am planning to use this fall.  Mapleton Zeus a yearling fawn katmoget on the left.  Harvest Thyme Champ a yearling mioget half poll in the center.  And the new ram at the farm...a two year old, Swiftriver Neville, who is a F1 Heights Orion son (in layman terms it means he is the product of imported "straw" from an UK sire and his mother was artificially inseminated).  His registered color is black but he almost looks like a really dark brown or Shetland black.  The rammie lambies are sitting out this round unless I decide to breed  my two largest ewe lambs, then I will give one to each of them:  Mapleton Storm a moorit HST and Spring Hills Patches a grey maybe even emsket smirslet katmoget.  Can you believe it is almost that time of year already!?
