Hopefully that helps and didn't completely swamp your brain. I was getting a little dizzy re-reading it.
I would guess, and it's just a guess since I haven't seen her in person, that she's not actually mioget. She's probably a fawn that's been washed out by the gray gene.Primrose is a yellowish brown now. So I would call her (based on what the colors are described on the NASSA site) Mioget now fawn. She has gone very pale. She also is a pain to get a picture of as she will stare at you and as soon as you go to click she turns away or puts her head down.
That is what is so cool about Shetland genetics. Two sheep can have the same basic color make up and turn out completely different. The amount of fading that Iris has already is what makes me wonder if she carries double graying, but there's not a good way to know for certain.Iris is an interesting one. She has lightened an incredible amount. She is facing the camera in this picture. Violet is the one facing away.
Yup, I can see the sugar lips now! That's a tell tale sign of the gray gene. She wouldn't be Krunet unless she has a white patch on her head. I'm only seeing gray floof on top, not a spot.From what I have been told, Heather was as dark as Yin is when she was a lamb and she lightened up to what she is now. Which makes me think Emset would be the correct color for Heather. I also think she may be Krunet. She has the "sugar lips" but for some reason, it doesn't show up on the side shots. Here is another angle.
I will have my guy available if you are interested. He'll be old enough to wean on the 18th, but I normally leave the Shetlands on their moms longer than 8 weeks. He's solid moorit, no gray so he should stay dark. His horns are looking good so far (his dad had one of the nicest sets of horns I've ever seen). His fleece is looking like it is going to be an intermediate type fleece. Not a ton of crimp, but should be soft.Now to look for a new ram for the girls my husband plans to keep. The plan is to sell one lamb from each of the twins and keep the other one. Yang will be wethered if we do not find a new herd for him. He is sweet and funny.
