Here are the ewe lambs we are keeping and that we have added this year…the future ladies of Kenleigh Acres. They are all my favorites for different reasons.
Kenleigh’s Duchess – Kenleigh’s Wrangler x Mud Ranch’s Queenie
Duchess has my favorite fleece of the group. So consistent and soft.
Kenleigh’s Avalon – Kenleigh’s Reno x Kenleigh’s Aimee
Avalon has my favorite facial marking.
Kenleigh’s Emeline – Kenleigh’s Wrangler x Kenleigh’s Holly
She is my favorite for her inquisitive personality. I am going to miss having Holly lambs this year, but Mollala and Emeline will carry on for their mom.
bideawee Shana – Sweetgrass Tobin x bideawee Marta
She is a very close runner-up for favorite fleece, but there can only be one…so she is my favorite for her top horns. Her laterals have both been broken, but are coming in nice and strong.
Ruby Peak Penstemon – Windy Acres Oberon x Ruby Peak Iris
She has my favorite new bloodlines. Here are pictures of her parents….

For once I have more 4-horn ewe lambs than 2-horns! I had to tell myself several times…no, you can not add another 2-horn ewe – yes, she is very nice, but the answer is NO!
I strive to have a diverse flock of jacob sheep and I think this group of ewes shows a wonderful variety of jacob traits.
