  1. Hmmm, doesn’t sound like the Tammy I know unless she has added a THIRD breed of sheep! In Shetlands the polled gene is considered “incompletely dominant,” because a Shetland that inherits a horned gene from one parent and a poll gene from the other parent will have scurs of some shape and size, sometimes nearly indistinguishable from “normal” horns.

  2. No, not the Tammy from blogland 🙂 I would love to talk to you more about the polled gene in Shetlands. It sounds like Shetland breeders and Jacob breeders define scurs a little differently. What is the definition of scurs in the Shetland world?
