The End of a Long Day

Well at the end of this long day, Hera presented us with beautiful, black twin ram lambs. Each has a small patch of white wool on his head, the second one a bit more than the first. These are our first lambs sired by Sheeps and Peeps 606, Poseidon. Hera is a Border Leicester X Coopworth cross, and Poseidon is a Wensleydale-Coopworth X Cotswald-Border Leicester cross. So, we are really anxious to see how their wool develops as they get older. Poseidon produced a beautiful fleece as a lamb - 6 lbs. 9 ozs. with a very curly staple length of 6 - 7 inches.
