Yesterday morning before church. She is jumping on Cleo, not even her momma!
Texas Five White Dorper, Rip, P 16, had a single ram lamb. But get this—-he has SPOTS! I didn’t see that coming! Cooper puts color on his lambs, even when bred to a pure white breed. This little guy has brown spots on his neck, nose and looks like freckles on his legs.
I put the Fat Girl Ewe Crew in the new field this morning and new lamb is doing fine. Rip is being an excellent momma.
So excited that you got color on the Dorpers. Cleo had black circles around her eyes that faded out but the reason I did not keep her is that she could have thrown color which is a big "NO-NO" for WHITE Dorpers. The South African Dorper inspector, Colene van der Merwe (also a breeder and judge) chose Cleo out of the youngsters as a keeper when she came to do the inspection in 2022. Both Cleo and Junior (my Lewis son that I kept as a stud ram) were the two that she looked at in the lamb pen and told me to "Keep those two!" She loved their body type. So glad that she threw color for you. I love the speckled stockings. And getting color out of another ewe is good too. Cooper seems to have a very strong color gene. So excited about the twin ewes from Cleo.
