These are our ewes. Some were the foundation upon which we built our herd, some are their daughters. Obviously, we’re still building towards our vision of a high percentage Gotland fiber flock. As we do so, some of the lower percentage animals will be phased out of our breeding program, as will some where we have an over abundance of their genetic makeup.
This is Edna, a lovely 85.5% moorit daughter of Darcy out of our ram Egil.
Dagny, our 91% ewe out of Swedish semen, seen here as a yearling shorn. Dagny, bred to our ram Egil, has given us some extraordinary 91% rams, and finally this Spring a gimmer.
Edda (83.6%) as a yearling, shorn.
This is Darcy, one of our original ewes. She is 80% and consistently gives us lovely lambs. She carries the brown recessive.
This is Beret, she is only a 70.5% second generation animal, but she has the distinction of being the very first lamb born on Larson Farms.
Fanny is an 87.3% ewe. This Spring she gave us a stunning daughter, Gudrun.
Faith is an 87.3% Edda daughter out of Egil. She was registered as a Grey Solid, but as an adult appears to be a Fawn. With her first breeding, she produced one Grey Solid daughter as well as one that looks to be Fawn.
