Horatio is named after Horatio Hornblower, in honour of his gorgeous horns. He’s not a pet, and he’s only 5 years old, but when he was younger, he decided that I was onto a good thing as flock leader, and he began tracking me. He’s generally near the front of the flock, often the first through a gate when I’m leading, though he won’t let me touch him. Horatio’s fleece weighs 3.7 kg/8.2 pd. TEST RESULTS: 19 micron; 80 mm length; 61 N/ktex strength.
