    there will be about 80 - 90 to choose from, I'll go out there and have a look at them in person. At this point I'm kindof liking #2 for his bone and bulk, #4 for his overall look and breed character, #16 for the length of body.

    It is so weird to see lambs with tails. I like the idea of them having the tails. I just hate it how short they take the tail off here in the US.

    What a group to chose from. I sure would not want to be in your shoes. That is going to be a hard choice.

    Well, I picked :wink: I havent been out there yet but I've been talking to the breeder and I'm pretty certain I'm going to go with #2.

    I asked her what her thoughts on the rams were, I told her I'd picked out the one that I thought was the standout (#2) but I was interested to hear her thoughts on the group. She said the young black ram (#2) is something special, the pick of the bunch. hee hee, seems like I have a bit of an eye for these creatures after all.

    Anyway, I like him for his enormous bone and muscle which is really something above and beyond what is standard for this breed. I like him for his breed character, and the tremendous masculinity at such a young age. Feet and legs look good, I will just have a look at testicles when I go out there, and the way he moves. Horns are good. Tail is FANTASTIC.

    Tee hee, I'm excited.

    Now I gotta think of a name ... gambling/casino suggestions please?

    Our hair sheep and one of our mix breed sheep have tails. We have desided when we start breeding our sheep we are going to leave the tails on also.

    I love the pic of these guys I really like 3, 5, 8 (the eyes) and 15

    But what do I know about sheep.

    I agree, I like #2 a lot as well, nice amount of bone. Wish I could have a direct front and back shot though. lol

    And here in the US the only breeds that normally have their tails docked are the market sheep (i.e. dorset, suffolk, hamp, etc) and that is because if they are not they can get fly strike which is VERY bad! Of course that can be prevented by shearing, but there would still be a risk for it. Hair sheep generally get to keep their tails. :wink: (sorry, had to defend the sheep people a little! :oops: )

    Oh and Keren, Damaras are hair sheep aren't they? I believe you said that somewhere, but I forgot. lol
