    Periwinkle had a black eweling!
    Just one, not sure why no twins this time. :hu
    Sire- Michaelis. Dual registered, RR.
    Not sure if the Cali breeder is okay with a single born, but asked just in case.

    Sent out for Muntjak's codon results, hoping she is RR so that she can go to Cali.
    Only have 3 more ewes who could have the lamb that breeder is after.

    Marshmallow had twin ramlings!
    Both have head marks. Seriously doesn't feel like a genetic oopsie, feels more like definitely a purposeful genetic thing to me...
    Sire is Michaelis, RR, NABSSAR.

    Finally got spotted ram's paperwork and since everyone under the sun calls spotted/black n white animals "oreo", I will use a name from this year's list instead!

    Hmm, which do you guys like better?
    Amur or Zikani?

    I like both names lol
    Isn’t Amur a type of leopard? Leopards have spots, so that would be appropriate :)
