Black badgerface horned ewe. Carries moorit. May carry spotting. Born May 1, 2010.

Flosi arrived here from Misty Meadows in October of 2014. She was sold only because he is retiring from breeding Icelandics, and its easy to see why he hung onto this one. She is a large, leggy sheep with some of the most beautiful fleece that is so signature of Misty Meadows. The staple is shorter, but both tog and thel are quite soft, and the thel is very dense. She is a Lundi granddaughter, sired by the same Lundi AI son that sired Lund, the sire to both our ram Sting and ewe Cattleya. I love this Lundi line. They have been hardy, superbly conformed sheep with some of the best wool you will find. But Flosi is not just a wool sheep; she is large and well muscled, especially for a four year old ewe who weaned lambs this year. She has the large, muscular rump that is so characteristic of this line. Her personality is bold and flighty, but she goes docile once caught and is easy to handle then.

She produced 3 lbs 1 oz of wool in Fall of 2014.
