A Right Dolly Mixture !!

 
 
Yesterday afternoon I took the camera out into the field, as I haven't taken any recent photos of Zanzibah Zyisha ... she is growing up very nicely, her pet name is Dolly Mixture.  I'm sure you can see why.  With virtually every colour in her fleece, there was a real battle of the colour genetics going on here, when she was a twinkle in her dads eye !

 
Zyisha is the first baby sired by Zeto, he has dominated her colour with his lovely grey.  This is Zimushka (Zeto's full sister) with Zyisha they have spotted the cat ...

 
He was soon chased out of their field by Zimushka ....you can just see him disappearing into the garden.

 
Ah .... my beautiful Zoretah .... she is very special, she has the most beautiful face and is a real sweetie ..... who loves a cuddle.

 
The girls grazing yesterday, still very little grass on the fields.  The girls have just finished off their carrots.  On this photo you can see Zoretah's light fawn patches on her hocks ... which are really quite different, she is a very dark brown, but she still has her light ankles and the patches on her legs.....
 
Zullulah has spotted something and is the only one with her head up.

Are you sure those aren't rust spots on Zyisha Jayne? only joking, a lovely characteristic!

Wild coloring! Very pretty. I'm guessing that fleece will make a special project.

The greys look great Jayne - Zyisha is an original! Hope you saw the Hebrides programme on BBC1 last night with the swallow families?
