I missed Annie at shearing time, so no fleece from her this year.  Annie and Emmie were twins born in 2009.  Their mother died unexpectedly when they were a week old.  They were the first bottle lambs I raised using my then newly-formulated nutritional wisdom concepts--I took them for walks, stopping by any weed or pasture plant, and waiting for them to copy "mom's" behviour and try the new plant.  As a result, they've been leaders in the foraging game for the whole flock ever since.  Now 8 years old, they are my oldest pets, and always a joy to find one of the other of them with me up front in the flock.  Annie's fleece weight last year was 3.6 kg/7.9 pd. TEST RESULTS last year: 18.3 micron diameter, 81 mm length, 71 Nktx strength.
