Pixie ~ Jacob Ewe For Sale ( Unregistered)

Cedar Pond's Pixie ~ Unregistered
These are pictures of Pixie as a lamb. She is a bit different than any of my other lambs and I find her interesting. Pixie has a "lilac" fleece, and she has 4 horns, though one of the horns ( on the side ) is scurred. I did not register Pixie because she does not show distinctive spots. As a lamb her fleece appeared chocolate brown.I never had a lamb fleece like hers. If I had a lot of acreage I would keep her and raise several generations of her lambs to see what characteristics they might show. I am keeping her parents ,Cedar Pond's Goth & Cedar Pond's Ruth so I am not losing the gene pool.

Baby Pixie

Pixie now, 2 years old. You can see her fleece color has faded and appears an all-over color, though when sheared you can see her distinctive large spotting.
