Breed name : Stones, Blossom
Born : 08-03-2005
Our first homebred lamb, Blossom was always going to be special. She was a twin lamb (brother Ben) from one of our original flock starting three ewes called Ellen. Both her mother and father had great bloodlines and Blossom turned out to be a cracking ewe.
Blossom inherited her mother’s gentle characteristics, a lovely fleece, pretty face and soulful big brown eyes. She was a favourite ewe of mine and stayed with us for 5 years and established herself as a firm favourite with our young children – she was always a real cutie.
With us Blossom had 5 lambs:
• Dinkerbel & Daphne (2008)
• Edward & Esther (2009)
• Fergus (2010)
Sold in Aug 2010, at the age of 5, Blossom helped another local family to establish their own flock of Greyfaces, just as we had done 7 years before.
(Sadly and unexpectedly Blossom passed away in spring 2012, at the age of 7, after producing a lovely pair of lambs for her new owners. Let’s hope her cuteness lives on in her new lambs as it has with ours.)
