Onyx Velour is my favorite ewe for sure! Does that mean she’s our nicest? Not necessarily, but I think she is most like what I’m after in a ewe in terms of the total package. First off, I really think she would do well in the show ring. She’s not as wide in the back as Cor de Nuit is, but that’s about her only flaw. Her fleece is more intermediate than single, but it’s in between. I’m very interested in what she throws this year. The good ones sometimes disappoint because their lambs don’t typically live up to them, but we’ll see. She was also bred to Cihat for some of the same reasons that I gave for Cor de Nuit. Onyx also would’ve worked with Leyland , but there was a substantial size differential and I didn’t want to risk leaving her open this year.
