Current Brood Ewes
Shaniqua is a gorgeous ewe, this girl will be in my flock forever. My mother constantly refers to her as a tank, which describes her perfectly. Her muscling is ridiculous and her girth is incredible. Her only fault is that her fleece tends to mat when it gets to long; she is one we shear twice a year.
She is an absolute doll once you get your hands on her. I have, on several occasions, had to remove my necklace and hair from her mouth while in the show ring.
She has won many awards such as; Reserve Champion Ewe at The 2012 Eastern States Exposition, Champion ewe and Best headed ewe at the 2011& 2012 NEYSS, and Champion Ewe at 2011& 2012 Bolton Fairs. I will really miss showing her, but I'm happy to get to show her babies.

Mabel is such a dog... in that she will walk over to anyone and ask for cuddles and treats! She even comes when she's called! I absolutely love this girl, both because of her personality, and her killer body.
She was my first true Mioget ewe, her fleece is a beautiful yellowish light brown with tons of crimp. She has a very stocky body, with correct legs, back, and tail. Her face is feminine with just a touch of masculinity.
She was the largest of triplets, and has done very well for herself. Mabel inherited her bulgy eyes from her mother (whose eyes were almost too bulgy!). Her striking look has won her many awards as a yearling, including Best of Show in the Bolton Fair (youth show), Champion ewe at NEYSS, BIG E (youth), and Woodstock (Open and Junior).

Andromeda was our last lamb out of Aleen, and her first Katmoget. I had always wanted a kat out of Aleen, and when I saw her little head poking out of Aleen's vulva, I had to check I wasn't dreaming! She was also from the year that we used CIDRs (progesterone implants) to try and have early lambing.
Andra is a killer ewe, she has a perfect head, great structure, and beautiful fleece. She just keeps growing, and has grown into a stocky brood ewe. She seems to be a black base katmoget with musket body, and no dusting which is rare in our Kats.
I'm excited to see what she produces, but honestly, I'm just happy to have her in my life. Her first lamb is a stunning kat/gul ewe lamb Selene, with her mother's striking face.

WhitePine Nina Sky (AI)
Nina Sky is a new addition to our flock all the way from Wisconsin!
She is a fine fleeced Shetland, and is registered with the FFSSA. She is an F1 Todhill Jericho, which means she is a AI baby (artificial insemination). One of that last born out of this particular ram. She is registered as a katmoget with bleset and sokket markings, which are just stunning. She carries brown, and passes on her stunning markings to her lambs.
Nina is an experienced mother, and comes to us with several breeding years left, plus many years of awesome fleece. She has already bonded with our younger ewes, and trots around like she owns the place. We are so happy to have her, and can't wait to see what she produces with our boys.

Xena is such a weird looking ewe. Her uniqueness is what is keeping her around, because i just want to see where she goes! The strangest thing about her is her fleece. It seems to be closest in color to emsket, but yet its more foggy almost brown/grey in the neck and her pits. It's dense, crimpy, and single coated; which isn't that odd, but that color!
Another strange thing about her overall look. Her head is sleek with larger ears, yet she still is constantly perky and alert. Her long body, matched with her dense fleece makes her look fitted.
We will have to wait and see how she continues to grow.
Xena won champion ewe in the open Shetland show at the 2017 Big E. The judge commented on how she's a more "midwestern type" ewe, i.e fine fleeced. We are so happy to finally get fine fleeces recognized in the North East!

Up and Coming Brood Ewes (Yearlings)
Rhea- i.e my teddy bear.
She is a beautiful dark brown gul out of my tank Shaniqua. I have been wanting a dark gul out of one of my girls (preferably Shaniqua, or Mabel).
Rhea is truly a ray of light. She is shy, but when she trust someone, she slobbers her love all over them.
She's flashy, and grows enough fleece to make a blanket or two.
I can't wait to see how she develops, but I think she'll end up looking like a clone of her mother. *fingers crossed*
As a lamb she topped her classes, even though she was born later then most of her competition.

Selene is one unique ewe.
Besides her stunning kat/gul patterning, she also has the most curiosity of any sheep I've met. She is constantly watching the world, and is always the first to investigate a new object in the pen.
Her fleece is thick, crimpy, and lustrous. It shifted between light and medium grey as a lamb, and looks like it may become more musket as she ages.
I'm keeping her around for now to just see how she develops. She may be available for spur chase next summer/fall, only time will tell.

Flora is a little fire cracker,
She had a rough start to life, as her mother became ill and was unable to feed her and her brother properly. Flora suffered the brunt of it, and was close to death's door by the time we stepped in (young lambs can go downhill really fast, like in a day, when they or their mothers are sick).
However, she persevered and has bounced back. She will never be as large as the other lambs her age, but she seems to be fairing well reguardless. She loves to push her way through the group to the feed bucket, and is the leader of the daily "lamb races".
Flora has a remarkably fine fleece, I dare say the finest I've bred. A beautiful light moorit, with luster, and crimp for days.
She will be staying around for awhile, because of her awesome fleece and her lovely demeanor.

Ink is one of the craziest and most curious sheep I have ever met. She is always saying hi to the neighbors, and graciously accepting their treats.
She looks short bodied, but only because of her super long legs. She has a typical grey fleece that has relatively consistent crimp, with a soft texture. All her lambs so far have been gorgeous greys, with huge bodies.
Ink is very trusting of people, and has always been the life of the party. Every since her first show I have been fending off buyers. Ink may not be the most stunning ewe in the barn, but she makes up for that with personality. I just love this big girl.

Aleen is 12 years old, yet still has the flashiness and poise of a five year old. She is one of the old troopers of our flock, and was my most prized brood ewe. She has produced so many incredible lambs it's mind-blowing; I wish this ewe could live forever. She is extremely intelligent, and can only be caught when she's sick. I believe she has a secret desire to be sweet and friendly, because her lambs are always the most loving babies.
Her fleece is medium length, variegated in color, and simply gorgeous. She consistently passes along great bodies, tails, fleeces, and personalities. She is an absolute gem.
Check out her progeny on the NASSA search site! (link--> S22098) *p.s if you want see more click on Freddys Mocha, and check out his progeny ;)*
She has always been a handful, and has taken our flock on one-too-many neighborhood walkabouts. As fate would have it, a family needed a partner for two wethers they were getting from us. So she went along for a month to get them adjusted, ended up bonding with some barbados ewes, and is now living with them perminently. Barbados are almost too intelligent, so it makes sense that Aleen would fit right in.
She seems truly happy with her new friends, and hasn't gotten loose once. I miss her, but I'm content knowing she's safe and having a marvelous retirement. :)
