    Well, my boss raises Katahdin sheep (hair sheep) and she had one BEAUTIFUL cinnamon colored ewe born the other day. She's also a really good size and out of a registered ram and an unregistered ewe. I fell in love with her. And......my boss offered to sell her to me for only $50! So I might be getting her. I'll get some pictures of her for you tomorrow. :wink:

    I might keep her with my goats or I'll keep her where I have my horse, because he already has a flock of sheep. I'm not sure yet. Yes I sold all of my sheep except for my market wethers, I really miss having them around. :( I might get two, not sure yet I just know I'm most likely getting this girl.

    Thanks! :greengrin: I can't wait to start taming her down, I just have to be careful because my boss can't have any of the other sheep tame. (she uses them to train herding dogs) What made today even better was that I got to see a lamb BORN! It's the first time I've ever seen a completely natural birth. Even with Orion I pulled. (probably didn't need to really) It took less than 2 minutes!

    She should stay this color. Her wool may come in white but when she sheds she will always be this color. They're mainly used as meat sheep, I've heard of some people actually milking them. Some of them actually have some udders that could compete with our dairy goats. :shocked: lol I'm hoping that there will be a black one born like last years, she was beautiful. My boss prefers the plain white Katahdins but I love the paints, reds, and blacks. Once there was even a CALICO one. Let me scrounge some piccies up. lol :greengrin:

    Last years interesting lambs. lol

    Sooo cute! And the white one in the pic with her is the cutest thing..

    You should name her Alyssa. I saw the first pic and for some reason my mind said 'Alyssa' after Piccologoat of course.

    Re: I'm possibly getting another sheep! *pics added*

    Thanks! I was excited because my favorite ewe had her twins as well, both pure white, we were lucky though because the day before the ewe was prolapsing. :shocked: Called the vet and he said that all the sheep were WAY too fat and it was probably going to cause more complications if we didn't start taking them away from the hay.

    I have not decided what I want to name her. I know that I want something really original though. That close up with her and the white one was kind of frustrating because the white one kept trying to come up to me! I can't tame them, I can't tame them, I can't tame them! lol And the two lambs that were born while I was there kept trying to bond to me instead of their momma. :roll:

    I had a very eventful day at work yesterday. :wink:

    We have a hair sheep in our petting zoo and she is one of the most friendlist sheep we got. You will enjoy her. Just think no shearing. You do nto have to sheer off there coats. Ours is named Camper. She is white with brown spots and I love playign with her. We got her this summer with a black sulfuk mixed Named Miss Molly. Enjoy when you get her.

    Thank you, I used to have a Suffolk named Tempest, she was great too. I've liked sheep for a while, so as soon as I get more land I'll have sheep, goats, AND horses! mwahaha. (hopefully without going insane)
