Orion

                                                

 

Born in 2015 as a triplet, full sibling to our ewe Odessey and half sibling to Ariel. At 3 years old he weighs 160lbs and is well behaved and respectful. He has sired a number of lambs for us the past 2 years. He is black-based but likes to throw his morrit genetics to his offspring. Orion is RR and is light badger face and swiss markings. He carries no spotting. His fleece is stunning! With a micron count of 24 and a beautiful creamy silver gray in color, his fleece has consistently represented our flock at area fiber shows. It has an amazing soft handle with a gorgeous luster. There is lots of really tight crimp with a staple length of 3.75″ – 4”. His fleece was either 1st or 2nd place in the natural colored fine wool class at every show we went to in 2017. At the 2017 Wisconsin Sheep and Wool show his fleece scored a 99 out of 100 points (he came in 2nd to our ewe Oceana who scored a perfect 100). His fleece is very popular and is one of our favorites.
