Next are a trio of Blackies: EweOne, Jennie, and Dallie. Dallie is our best producing Blackie ewe, EweOne is one of her daughters, and Jennie is EweOne's daughter, one of last years produce from LAI. Her sire is a REAL Scottish SBF. Jennie is the last remaining Blackier here in full fleece.
Here is a head shot of Dallie. She shows very nice traditional Scottish Blackface type.
Remember Luna from Thursday's blog? She is shown below, no longer looking like Cousin Itt. Her very nice fleece will be shown at the Fairs this summer.
The sheep look so different with their wool shorn off! Below is Tucker (Finnsheep) bulging with lambs and developing bag.
This blog is going through Shetland withdrawal! Here's Bessie to remind us of the Real Sheep. Bessie is taking it easy in the last few days before her lambs arrive.Then... despite yesterday's forecast of nice weather all weekend, the Rain returneth. We spent most of the day working at our local Labrador Retriever club's "spring" agility trial, getting wetter and wetter. Of course, no sheep were penned, and they are now waaaaay too wet for shearing. Ah, well. It's nice to have a little break.
