Ready for a little nightcap?
Hope you don't mind some fuzz in your mouth!
Welcome back to Lil'Country Nightcap, an 8 1/2 year old smooth-polled moorit (or possibly mioget) Shetland ram – and a consummate gentleman. He was here three years ago, and sired Benny, Jet, Blaise, Bali Hai, and Barbados – not a solid brown lamb among them. I brought him home Friday and immediately put him in the Ram-ada Inn lot with Bree and Babette – who were horrified! (They've since gotten over that.)
I can get nothing BUT brown lambs from this breeding group, and I expect good things in fleece and structure, too.
