I Spot Spots on the Wrong Side of the Fence

When I got home from school yesterday, I was thinking that there appeared to be spots on the wrong side of the fence..........

and after closer examination by Dixie, yes there were spots on the wrong side of the fence. I know the grass is greener on the wrong side of the fence.....however!!! Leave it the lambs to figure out a way out.

Dixie got them rounded up for me by the main entrance to the barn because gosh forbid they would go back in the way they came out. Of course, once I got them back in the little stinkers went out again within a 1/2 hour but I saw how they got out and fixed that "issue".
These boys are out of Sheltering Pines Spirit and she has always given me spotted lambs. She is actually a daughter of Stephen Rouse's Sheltering Pines Hildegard. I waited a long time to get a beautiful spotted ewe from Stephen & the wait was worth it:)

Now this little white/moorit spotted guy is only showing about 1/8 inch scur growth at 6 weeks old. His brother has about 1/2 inch growth. I will be offering him, the black & white yuglet spotted ram for sale, pending of course horn/scur growth. The white/moorit boy may or may not be offered........not that I am thinking of keeping him but depending on those little scurs.......

Finally catching up on your blog after a long absence. I loved the pictures of the Cotswold lambs. So sweet! That moorit and white spotted lamb takes my heart though - what a beautiful boy. Good thing I don't live too close to you!

Kristi, what's the bloodlines on the moorit spottie? I might be interested in adding him to my collection if he's breeding quality and you do decide to part with him.

Sharrie,
I love those spots..I wish I could keep them all!!

Claire,
Hey it is so good to hear from you!! Thank you for the compliments on the babies:) Now you know we can fly a lamb your way....just a thought;)

Juliann,
Jammer is the sire and his parent are Jed. and Polly. Polly is the blk smirslet I got from you those parents are Wintersky Mickey Mouse and CeCe. The spotted boys dam is Sheltering Pines Spirit and her parents are Sheltering Pines Hildegard and Underhill TS Eliot. It is so hard to wait and see how the horns/scurs pan out. I can always send close up pics too:)
