These girls are taking a break in the barn. Shetlands Lily (moorit), Nugget (musket) and Lulu (white) are on the left. One of our two Cheviot ewe lambs is on the right.
This is a good picture to illustrate the size difference between the Shetlands and Cheviots. Nugget (Shetland ewe) is on the left. She is a little smaller than the Cheviot ewe lamb on the right. We bought the two Cheviot ewes from Kathy and Al Munkelwitz in Isle, Mn. The Cheviots will be put with a Blue Faced Leicester ram in December. In the spring, we will have our first Mule Sheep from a BFL-Cheviot cross!
Here is another picture of a Cheviot girl. I still can't think of names for the two girls. Ideas anyone??
Roundaboutacres also added two BFL-Shetland Mules to our flock this year. These two lovely ewe lambs - white and colored Mules - were purchased from Laura at Psalm 23 Farm. On the right is a Shetland ewe lamb.
