Bluebell - Rich

Bluebell is Tiara’s mioget daughter from last spring and looks a lot like her. We don’t have micron data on her, however. She was, however, the smallest lamb that we bred, so I’m always a little anxious about that, but she’s right in line with where Violet, Peony, Chiffon, and Tiara were last year at this time. They were all smallish ewes and did fine. When I say smallish, I mean dancing around the 50 pound mark at the start of breeding. Bluebell was bred to Leyland and feels quite soft, so we’re quite interested in this lamb. She doesn’t have the density that some of the other ewes have, but it’s a nice fleece.
