What do you guys think I would get lambs looking like if I crossed these.. would I even be lucky enough to get a dorperish lamb 🤣. I'm trying to work out something to breed them to a nice hamp ram but if I don't have any other options I will breed them to my hair guy just so they will lambed before I ai them next year but I'm kinda scared I don't want to make some weird messed up lambs from it lol. The ewes were born in March I would be breeding for them to lamb in April because I am showing them. Below is the ram and one of the 2 ewes

I really want to breed them to this one but I don't know yet if I'm going to be able to. I showed a lamb out of him last year

You would get a terminal cross, meat to put in the freezer. Doesn’t matter what it looks like.
Yeah i guess a sheep is a sheep that's what I would be raising it for is meat I just feel like it would make something really weird looking lol

Greg is a funny man. Mom didn’t care when I was touching her baby. Those are the best moms. Better then the goats who try to kill you half the time. Greg is great tho. You can even tell he has hair sheep in him. I wonder if you will be able to see it later?

The hair/wool mix may make him look scruffy, but it won’t matter. You shave him down to the skin anyway. And you are darn good at it too!

You can see it in him more now. He's starting to turn white to, besides the face and legs.
