Tilly & Tara

Tilly and Tara (2020-04-23) are two sweet and compact Shetland sheep that came to us from Petersholm Farm.  These gray twin ewes have amazingly dense fleeces and despite their small stature, produce lots more wool than you would think!  These girls were black at birth, but are expressing the Ag allele, which means that they are "graying out" as they age.  There is a marked difference in their lamb fleeces (shorn in September 2020) and their first year fleeces (shorn in March 2021).
