I missed Prince's fleece this year. I have a plan for getting a higher percentage of named sheep recognised by the shearers next year: we'll draft them off ahead of time, and send them through in a cohort. The shearers just don't see the various marks I've tried! Prince, or “Principe” in Italian, is one of Vicki’s many boyfriends. He has the most beautiful face–much too pretty to be a boy, in my opinion. He’s quite inquisitive, and though not a pet lamb, will sometimes let me touch him. I have a theory that Vicki has told all her boyfriends that I’m basically ok. She and Prince, Leo, Albert, Elf, Curly and Horatio are a bit of a schoolyard gang. So, I often find all of them near me when I’m shepherding, because Vicki is ALWAYS with me if she can manage it. Prince is 2 years old, and his fleece weight last year was 3.8 kg/8.4 pd. TEST RESULTS last year: 16.1 micron diameter, 93 mm length, 42 Nktx strength.
