Cormo Pictures and Fleeces

Yes, I have been very tardy about updating the blog. I need to find more time in the day, and learn to type.

This June I purchased two more Colored  Cormo Crosses. The fleeces are just as soft, long and as lovely as Registered Cormos, but due to the fact that reg. Cormos have to be white, these are referred to as Colored Cormo Crosses.

This is the new ram...Mars



The tuff on his chest is some fleece that has "puffed" from under his Sheep Suit.

Here is his fleece photo...
This fleece will be processed into pin draft roving, and will be available
in April

The new ewe is Vanity

 
She is very pregnant, and making bag, she is not at her "picture best" :>)

This is her fleece...
Vanity's prime, (wool under their sheep suits), will also be processed into pin draft if not sold as a fleece
If you are interested in any of fleeces in the raw please contact me at:

Here is one of my favorite ewes...This is Vanessa. She is very much the type I like to see in a Cormo, the look of a marshmallow with legs. Her legs are very straight, and her overall conformation is very good.

Vanessa has spots and her fleece runs from tan, to med gray, to light gray, to white.
This fleece will be shown this year, after the shows this year it will be available.

This is her fleece...




Gladys is one of my reg. Cormo ewes, she is bred to Pepin. Gladys has a beautiful white fleece. Her fleece will be shown this year in the white class.



and this is her fleece...



This a very typie ewe, her name is Endive. Once again one of my favorites. Great conformation and straight legs. She is a joy to be around.


her fleece...


 

This just start of what I have, and I'll post the rest of the crew as soon as I get my sister back over on the 1st of December. I have "ants in my pants", and can't wait to get them sheared. They will be sheared by Nick
Weaver on  February 13, 2010.

"Thank You" Sharon for taking all of the photos.
