Today's Featured Ewes - Seeing in B&W: Mapleton Destiny and Mapleton Violet
These two Minwawe Bahama daughters are personality plus!
I wish you could feel this lamb! I think maybe the softest of that lamb crop and so consistent from front to back. Perfect little tail and very square, although it is hard to tell from this photo since he is standing on slight slope. And you got to love those fuzzy cheeks! He was very friendly so we decided to wether him. I thought despite his wonderful qualities indicating he could be a breeding ram, using those qualities to represent the farm and Shetland Sheep as part of the "garden tour" at McKenzie Child's was the perfect alternative for him. Now if Vi and Zeus can give me a repeat in ewe form...she might just be staying!
