And then, the black sheep with the the odd nose rings, eye rings, ear rings & such.
It seems to be agouti being expressed, possibly a dark blue agouti pattern.
Collage as example.

And then, the nose white...That is thought to be age related graying. They're born black & it comes in over time. Examples can be seen above.

Lastly, the odd neck marks. Both father n son have it. Not breeding him this year, but he'll have lots of ewes next year & we'll see if another of his offspring inherits it.

And, we already talked about the random dark grey to black spot on white sheep. But here it is again.
Those are beauty marks & are not related to spotting. They tend to fade quickly.

First is FatWrinkley, had black on inside front left leg.
Second & 3rd is Piccolo, has tiny mark on shoulder.
Last is Patchie the Pirate. She has it as a "black eye", thus her name, lol.

Guy should be coming this week to regrade around The Pit. Finally!!

Once he's done, I'll be ordering this building.

I'll probably add a carport on the property line side for the tractor. Hoping the mini & pony carts can fit in there as well.

Oats in a big bin today. They'll be locked up for an unknown number of days while regrading is happening. They have a round bale to snack on, if they feel like it or run out of grass.
