“Black Tunis” is probably the most productive ewe in our flock and also the oldest. She raised nice big healthy triplets last year and hopefully is planning to do it again. Her father was a purebred Jacob ram and her mother was mostly Tunis with a colored Romney great grandsire. She isn’t impressive looking, but is a dedicated mother. Her lambs this year are sired by a young Texel ram. Born today, February 25, 2014 7.5 # black ewe lamb, 8 # black ram lamb and 9 # white ram lamb.
We have her twin two year old daughters in our flock as well – Grizelda and Mamasita. Sired by an Icelandic ram, each produced lovely large ram lambs last year and we have high hopes for them in 2014 as well.
