We interrupt this blog to bring you an IMPORTANT message!

This handsome young lad is Marietta's Louie, and he is FOR SALE!

Louie comes from a line of prize winning fleece sheeps and, he took fifth place in individual Shetland Ram Lambs at the recent Skagit County Fair and he and his brother Danny took the BLUE ribbon for best pair of ram lambs.

He has a fantastic horn set. Probably the best of any ram lamb that we've ever had here.

He was, as you can see, born brown, and now has a very pretty, lusterous fleece. The Shepherd says it is musket, but I think he will be more of a fawn myself. It is very much like Luna's fleece that won first place at this year's Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene Oregon.

His mother is an unusual copper colored moorit, and his brother Danny is quite dark - darker than the brown tips on Louie.

He has a very nice tail and is actually quite "square" (although this picture doesn't show it very well).

He is good natured and is halter trained.

He needs a new home, SOON!

We need to find him a new home, because:

#1 - We don't need three rams - The Shepherd will be putting one girl in with HB and three in with Danny, who like his mother is moorit all the way thru.
#2 - We don't need another fawn colored sheep - sometimes you just have to make those decisions and somebody, no matter how sweet they are, doesn't make the cut.

I hope you will consider adding Louie to your flock. He is one sweet boy. Leave me a comment if you are interested and I'll have The Shepherd get right back to you!

beautiful little guy. Wonderful horns! Hope you sell him soon.

Very nice, even if I don't want horned boys! But I would definitely call that a musket fleece, at least by the way I define musket (Ag brown).

Oooo, he's lovely. Wish I could have sheep.

He's a nice little guy...now IF you want to take a few in trade...

Wow, I hope you find him the home he deserves - what a sweet boy. I'd just like this fleece, but I'm selfish like that.
