So here we go, I would like to introduce the latest additions to our flock. Finally, I hear you say!

They are from our very good friend Bill, I say very good friend although I may have to stop speaking to him as every time I do I end up buying sheep or …., ah well that’s a post for another day!

We were very lucky that our friend Meagan was also buying sheep from Bill and as we are on the way she kindly agreed to pick ours up at the same time as hers.

Ladies first … when we went down to Bill’s for his shearing day I spotted a couple of girls I really liked, but at the time they weren’t for sale. One of them was Blythe who came home with us the other day, another was WillowGarden Piper Laurie, she is a mioget gulmoget and isn’t she pretty!

To keep her company we also got WillowGarden Guelph, she is a grey gulmoget / katmoget. This means that she carries the genes for both gulmoget and katmoget patterns so all her lambs should be very interesting.

And last but not least, WillowGarden Toronto, a moorit gulmoget. I fell for him when Bill first posted on his blog about him.

As you may have guessed I really like the gulmoget pattern!

I love to know what you think so please rate my post or leave me a comment. If you really liked this post maybe you would consider sharing it. Thank you.

  1. Congratulations Heidi!!! Nice looking additions, Toronto looks really interesting and Piper is a gorgeous looking ewe. I am still trying to figure out patterns & colours. If Piper is Gulmoget, I can see she looks to have a light/white tummy, but her legs are dark looking…is there some other pattern in there too?

  4. I am not sure Cindy, you can really see the gulmoget pattern in the pictures of her as a lamb on Bill’s blog: http://willowgardenshetlands.blogspot.com/search?q=piper

    I will put the question to Bill.
