Oh no! Not another boy!!!

C’est pas vrai! Encore un petit bélier!

Marcus, black ram, born April 30th out of Cassonade, a brown ewe, and Jasper, a grey ram. He is a carrier of both brown and grey.

Marcus, bélier noir, né le 30 avril de Cassonade, brebis brune, et de Jasper, bélier gris. Il est donc porteur de la couleur brune et de la couleur grise.

I have just come across your blog and LOVE it! What do you do with all the boys - are they for the pot or do you keep them? I have coloured sheep and would love black! Thanks - I will be following your blog from now on!

Thank you so much.
Unwanted boys are generally sold either for breeding rams or for grass eating pets. When I see a boy that doesn't look very nice I castrate him & then sell him as a pet.
The ouessant black is quite lovely and very intense ... the blackest wool that I've ever seen.

Thank you for visiting the Spinning Shepherd!
