Black is back..
Our East Friesian Ram (Trace) is all black with a white star on the top of his head. We have used him in our breeding for three years and usually we get a large varitey of colors in the lambs, but not this year. Out of 7 lambs that have been born 4 look just like Trace. We have also always gotten rams this year we got ewes. I was planning on keeping the female lambs to use as milking stock, (they should get cute girlie names) but they all look the same. How the heck is this farmer supposed to tell them apart?? Got any ideas??
