Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Conway Seeks Ewe Flock

Fairlight Conway
(Three Ring Just Jack x Fairlight Luna)

Conway is growing up, and still looking very nice. He is a solid little guy, with good solid conformation. I'm unsure yet what fleece type he will have, but am guessing at a shorter intermediate. His fleece at this time seems shorter than his half siblings, so he may lean towards a UK style fleece. Regardless, it should be very soft and have a nice handle. He is stocky and wide both fore and aft and his horns are looking extremely nice, with a very wide placement. His tail is acceptable in length, although slightly rat tail in appearance. This may improve as he develops more wool covering. He is now as large as his mom, but much of this is due to being a single.

He is a nice dark moorit, born with a large krunet. Although he isn't as flashy as his half brother Orion he is equally as nice, with a much nicer horn structure. (If you are looking for a nice spotted ram, both Orion and Omen are still available as well!) He should pack a powerful spotted genetic makeup and bred to spotted ewes or spot carrying ewes will produce spots for you. For more information and price check out my website.

You sure have some handsome Shetland boys!!

I haven't been able to read up on blogs lately and I was SO sorry to hear about your loss of Ariel. She was a beautiful dog.

I'm surprised I have any heart left for every dog I've lost that has torn away a bit of it every time they go. All I can hope for is that some day they will all be waiting for me, and know that I gave them the best life possible.
