Candace's First Lambs

Yes, I am a keeper!

"Lord it's hard to be humble... but I'm doin' the best that I can."

What do you mean, it's supposed to snow?!

Candace is a Carryhouse R1 daughter out of Starkey Spring, who was Morlea x David Firth bred. Morlea Ebony Boy 1907/N74 was the highest indexing Sire Reference Scheme ram born in 1998. That with the old Canadian Firth genetics seems to have made a solid, easy keeping ewe that milks well, but is kind of short and dumpy. The Carryhouse R1 and Beeston T70 infusion has styled them up, brought them up off the ground, added tremendous milking ability and added more fleece weight.

If you're looking for a stylish+productive white ram for siring purebred Blues, he's your boy. Drop me a note if you're interested.

~And a BIG thank you to Margaret and Cindy for giving me the extra nudge to buy Ward Moor-Kirk and Kelly for selling him to me. Kirk's been the best investment I've made so far for this flock. I look forward to the impact his progeny will have here. xo
