|Here is a group of lambs with a sub-pattern often called "Zulu" in the hair sheep. The boar goats also have this pattern.
This pattern is desirable in the hot tropics, like Africa, where a white body repels the hot sun but the dark pigment on the
head and neck will protect the lips and eye lids from the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays.
|These are young adult rams from my line. They have the wide curl that many people want, in addition to the color. For horn
genetics I have both the Ho+gene (horns in both males and females) and the Ho(hl) gene (horns in males only). I do not have
the modifier scur gene Sc in my flock and none of my sheep carry the polled gene Ho (p) either.
|Here are some shots of the ewe flock. I keep between 30 and 50 ewes, all of good color, so I can supply large numbers of
lambs so buyers can get unrelated stock but still from the same good color producing line and get enough to justify
