This year we kept three ewe lambs to grow up as yearlings. Two of these beautiful girls will be my pair for showing next year and the third is being kept to be shown under my mothers name. However, we can only keep so many sheep on our little farm, and I would love to find Phoebe a good home even if that means not showing her. Phoebe is a beautiful gray gulmoget. Her mother is a black gulmoget and her sire was a gray bersugget. Her fleece is dense with a medium crimp and nice luster. And Phoebe has excellent conformation, breed character, and a fabulous tail. She is a wonderful ewe who would be a great brood ewe, fiber animal, or pet! Price $300.

So show season is finally over. It was a great year filled with fabulous friends, good food, and the great sheep. The last two shows were the Big E and Topfsield Fair. Five of my fleeces were brought up to Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival and they all sold! This half of the fair season belonged to Margery. She was best fleeced and reserve champion ewe at Big E. At Topsfield she was champion shetland ewe and overall champion shetland. I could not be happier with her, she has a stellar fleece a great body, and the sweetest personality. Margery will be one to stay in my flock as a brood ewe.
