Ewe-A-Day - Marianne

Marianne is another daughter out of Egyptian Autumn and Pearl. She is a fawn katmoget with very good fleece stats: 22.4/5/22.3/8.3/22.1. As you can see, a lot of our lambs had very similar fall micron test results. What I like most about Marianne and Elinor is that they are out of two excellent super fine parents. I like the fleeces on their parents a great deal, but I think the combination could bode well for future generations. There is a very high likelihood that lambs like this can produce exceptional lambs of their own when combined with the type of rams that we have. It’s always tough to wait two years to see that offspring, but that gives you a chance to get a good look at last year’s lambs that we were so high on.
