Willow is a 6-month-old Royal White and Black Belly mix ewe (plus some other things but not sure exactly). Which means she is the mixture of a hair sheep and wool sheep. This combo is perfect for the ranch because we can use her wool (and if her kids have wool) to make dryer balls; plus hair sheep are a much milder meat so when it comes to feeder lambs the meat should be a much better quality.

Birch is a 6-month-old Desert Painted Lamb and I just have to take a moment to appreciate his coloring. A Desert Painted Lamb is considered a purebred mixture of Mouflons and Black belly sheep. Which are both hair sheep and great for people whom have issues with lanolin and don't necessarily want goats. I do have to say he is a very good companion for willow ever since they were introduced to each other she has not left his side.
