Ewe-A-Day - Whispering Pines Fanny

Fanny is a fawn katmoget out of Canterbury and Siena. I really like her twin brother and she is nearly his equal. We’ve had a long running goal to reproduce Siena with a finer fleece, and this ewe lamb might just be the ticket. Her fleece stats are: 21.1/4.3/20.6/7.9/20.5.
Stats never tell the entire story with a sheep, but this is a really nice ewe lamb by any standard. We knew Siena was something special immediately and I can’t make the same claim here, but then again, we didn’t have 25 lambs on the ground when Siena was born, so you tended to notice the really nice ones more. Now it seems like all of them are nice, so it’s hard for a lamb to really stand out unless they have flashy markings or something of note.
