Are the white girls most valuable since their wool can be dyed?

Great looking statistics on the lambing.

Not necessarily. If you are selling to a big commercial wool pool, then white wool is what you want. They also prefer fine/medium wool like merino, Rambouillet, Columbia, etc vs the long wool breeds.

Hand spinners/crafters like both white and natural colored. My preference is a silver, gray, or brown (moorit) fleece.

Miss T named Patti’s lamb “Elsa.” Yes, she has watched Frozen 7 million times. But Elsa is a much better name than “Wheel” which was her 1st idea.


I somehow managed to get all 4 dogs in one spot, at the same time, and all looking in approximately the correct direction.
