Our darling Bronwyn was born to Irene nearly a month ago (May 30), but we were so intrigued by her markings and coloring that in our excitement to consult a few sheep color experts, she was never properly announced!
The white marks on her head could potentially be explained as spotting, but the lighter coloration of her body (as compared to her belly) does raise an eyebrow. Irene is thought to be a recessive-color carrier, but we believe Bronwyn’s sire, Steve, is extension dominant (color, but not recessive) and isn’t likely to carry color at the agouti allele. But perhaps time will tell! In the meantime, Bronwyn is a delightful little girl, frisking about with her best friend, Bella.
