Ok, I am still waiting for my friend Cate to send me along some more pictures of the little ram lamb born yesterday. The other pictures that I have of him are rather fuzzy. But I will post them when I get them.
In the meantime, I did mention that last year, a friend of mine leased Merlin and used him as the stud ram at her farm.
This first picture is Duncan (born in 2006).
Not the best picture - he was a bit put out when we took him out of the trailer.
This next picture though shows Duncan's belly - remember - these are pictures taken in 2006.
Definitely a very defined white underbelly.
And now, this picture was taken of Duncan
this year, only a few days ago after shearing.
Unfortunately - we can't see his face very well.
So we can't see if he has eye flashes. However - still white under the belly and legs.
Now, this last picture that I'm going to post right now, is of a ram lamb that was born this year at
He was sired by Duncan and is out Woolly Bonnie
Again, you can see the white underbelly, and the phaeo markings - and I think that's black at the eyes - and I don't know if they classify as eye flashes or not.
However, this gulmoget marking trend has continued.
I will post the pictures of Cate's ram lambs as soon as they arrive.
Hope these pictures are a bit helpful to those of you that are trying to help me.
Again - comments are greatly appreciated.
