Bluebell's ram - Rich

Bluebell’s ram lamb this year might be our best. His fleece has the softest handle of any born this year, and he carries the modifier. He has a perfect tail and just looks solid at this point. I can’t make a call on his horns yet. It’s possible that he’ll be a half poll, but it’s also possible he’ll have a full rack. He is for sale because we are keeping his father. We’ll continue to evaluate him and may eventually keep him, but with so many nice rams, we can’t keep everything. If we find the right home for him, we’ll sell him, however. He may also carry spots!

Rich. congrats on another moorit gulmoget. I still don't have one :(

This ram lamb has completely straight hair it looks like in the photo. Will he get crimpy later?

I just had a jazz x nessebar (starry starry night x morgan le fey) black ram lamb with straight dog hair too. Time will tell on him ;)

Looks like this little guy is going to be a fawn or mioget -can never be certain with this line of modified- but his color is already very light. The Dillon guys often are very dog-hair at birth and then shed the entire coat later. Forrest certainly did; he was just a lovely little wave with lots of hazy fuzz until months later.

Cynthia, thanks for the input. He's a nice nice ram. He's definitely fawn and, like you said, might be mioget. Leyland has thrown some really nice lambs!
