#17 Esther

 I was a little late getting out to the barn this a.m.  I arrived at 7am to find Esther already caring for her triplets. Three little ewes and all doing well.
 These lambs will be of a higher fleece micron count, most likely 28 - 30avg.
I have been breeding for finer than this, but Ester is a 28 avg. micron ewe.  I really like Esther's fleece
it's what some would say is a great fleece to learn to  spin with, long staple length and drafts and spins easily.  A beautiful grey color too.  The ram I bred her to has a super fine fleece, Ram #115(black)...but you never know what you're going to get.
These little ladies are cute!
