Next three ewe lambs retained...
These are HarvestThyme Champ daughters. A half poll that I used as a flock sire last fall. He was of Little Country Acres and Windswept lineage. Two farms you many not seen crossed often as they seem to be of differing philosphies on Appendix A, however the cross made for some really nice results when crossed with what I have here. Maybe something to be said for middle ground. The one thing I did not like about this sire was the power struggle he had with the horned rams here. Maybe he felt he had something to prove, but after fracturing the pelvis of one, he found his way to the freezer. Before he did he was bred to three ewes with great temperaments, which yeilded great results.
Black and white ewe with the SOFTEST handle I have EVER felt, and very nice fine, fine, fine crimp. She is a High Bid Hester daughter and Maple Ridge Logan grand-daughter. The largest ewe lamb of the crop.
