Patchwork Poppy

Sex: Ewe

D.O.B: March 2012

Twin

Sire: Lambo Dam: Sandy

Base Colour: Black Pattern: Badgerface Spotting: Yes

Lambing Record: None

Poppy is a massive character! She almost looks more like a mountain goat than a sheep! She is very over confident, cheeky and sometimes a real madam. She still hasn't had any lambs and I don't think she is carrying any for 2014 which is a shame considering her lovely markings, fleece and looks. But we wouldn't sell her for the world! When I go and sit in the field with the sheep she paws at me for attention and generally shoves the other sheep out of the way to hog it all!

 Patchwork Daisy

Sex: Ewe

D.O.B: 16/03/13

Twin

Sire: Ben Dam: Sandy

Base Colour: Black Pattern: Badgerface & Mouflon Spotting: No

Lambing Record: None

Daisy is very much Poppy's little sister, she has the same cheeky confident personality and resembles her sister in looks too.

 Patchwork Daffodil

Sex: Ewe

D.O.B: 16/03/13

Twin

Sire: Ben Dam: Sandy

Base Colour: Black Pattern: Badgerface & Grey? Spotting: No

Lambing Record: None

Daffodil is much like her twin sister Daisy, similar personality to her elder sister Poppy and lovely pretty looks. She doesn't have horns unlike her other sisters. Its hard to identify what patterns Daffy has, but based on research I think she defiantly has Badgerface pattern and I'm inclined to believe she also shows the grey pattern.

Patchwork Fern

Sex: Ewe

D.O.B: May 2012

Twin

Sire: Ben Dam: Sirrus

Base Colour: Black Pattern: Mouflon Spotting: Yes

Fern is a lovely little ewe, she is friendly and inquisitive, she has extensive white spotting and the Mouflon pattern and is a lovely type with a nice gentle temperemant. She is one of my favourite ewes

D.O.B: 11/03/13

Triplet

Sire: Ben Dam: Rainbow

Base Colour: Black Pattern: None Spotting: Yes

Cleo is a really pretty,light framed ewe. She has lovely markings and a nice small size, the only negative about her is her horns could be neater but despite that she is a fab little sheep :) Very gentle and friendly.

Patchwork Harriet

Sex: Ewe

D.O.B: March 2012

Triplet

Sire: Lambo Dam: Sooty

Base Colour: Brown Pattern: None Spotting: Yes

Lambing Record: 1 boy

Harriet is a lamb who we hand reared in 2012. She was attacked by a dog at 2 weeks old which damaged her lower draw and she lost all her lamb teeth, the vet did a great job sewing her up but she still has an odd looking lower jaw and only 3 teeth, one of which is very malformed. Because this was a result of injury and not genetic there is no problem in using her for breeding. She is very friendly and chilled out and a lovely colour and great mum and copes perfectly well with her dodgy teeth! :)

D.O.B: 25/03/13

Twin

Sire: ?? Dam: Sweep

Base Colour: Black Pattern: Mouflon Spotting: Yes

Lambing Record: None

Clover is one of 2013's surprise lambs, her mum wasn't supposed to be in lamb, but went visiting the field where the main flock of ewes and rams were. She is tiny and very Soay like, maybe too much so for us, thus we might sell her in the future. But she is quite a little character and we are very fond of her :)

Patchwork Magic

Sex: Ewe

D.O.B: March 2012

Twin

Sire: Lambo Dam: Diggy Mo

Base Colour: Black Pattern: None Spotting: Yes

Magic is the most cuddle sheep you could meet! She is a big ball of fluff and quite literally gives cuddles, sheep style :) She would stand for hours to be hugged and fussed, she is as her name suggests, Magic :) She had 2 lovely little lambs this year :)

Muffin is a very rare/unusual colour, she is light phase (brown/moorit) but with great white spotting. Her fleece fades a lot with the sun but you can see her true colour/markings in the photo below. Muffin is lovely small, gentle, friendly ewe and she has fab looking lambs.

Single

Sire: Ben Dam: Sue

Base Colour: Black Pattern: Mouflon Spotting: Yes

Twin

Sire: Lambo Dam: Bugsey

Base Colour: Black Pattern: None Spotting: Yes

Lambing Record: (2011/1ram) (2012/1ram) (2013/1ewe1ram)

Very pretty Badgerface ewe and mum to our lovely ram Pancake! Mochi is a real cheeky character and probably the most attentive mum out of all out ewes, she will even mother other ewes lambs and help clean them, but never actually steals them of their own mum.

Sooty is one of our first, oldest and favourite little ewes. She is a pure Shetland ewe and we don't know her age but believe her to be quite old. She is very friendly, gentle and a wonderful mum! She is mum and grandma to a few of our ewes, and we hope to have a couple more years of lambs from her. She will then retire and live our her days here :)

???

Sire: Unknown Dam: Unknown

Base Colour: Black Pattern: None Spotting: No

Lambing Record: (2009/1ram) (2013/2ewes)

Current is our oldest sheep, she has had a very hard life, and nearly lost her life on 2 occasions. She was given away by us in 2011 to what we thought was a pet home for life. This turned out not to be the case and in 2013 we took her back. She was pregnant and against all the odds she had 2 healthy ewe lambs. She is will now be spending the rest of her days here, retired from breeding and having a nice quite life. She is a favourite sheep of ours and mum to our ram Lambo!

Ewes who we are planning to sell on. 

We really need to downsize on numbers again, 42 sheep is a lot to deal with and we may loose some grazing in the next few years so the ewes below we are planning to sell, they are mostly the larger of our ewes.
