I'll be selling a few adult & yearling Mule ewes this year, 1 BFL adult ewe and as well as most of the 2013 lamb crop. All lambs this year are out of my new BFL ram, Somerhill Xray (twin). Xray is sired by Llwygy 3772 - X1 UK (twin) and Somerhill Ballad 2323 (single) is his dam. Xray is tested RR, most resistant to scrapie.
I got a lot of nice lambs out of Xray (aka Ray) this spring and my ewe lamb percentage, for the first time, exceeded my ram lamb percentage. Ray's fleeces sold for a (DreamCatcher) record breaking $24 per lb and the buyer said "This is a once in (my) lifetime kinda fleece!" and included this pic of some washed locks:
|Wow! Look at that sheen!|

Fleece Wethers - If you're just looking for some fiber machines, I have plenty of those both adults and lambs (although you may have to do some prying out of my hands lol). I only keep back the cream of the crop for my fleece wethers but I'm overloaded with cream (ha) so I need to cut back. Most are friendly guys both white and natural colored, Mules and BFL. Contact me for more info.
