Laelia

ALX LAELIA M2H 12A -[CAN]704513-H

Laelia at a year and a half old. 09.17.2014

Moorit grey horned ewe. May carry spotting. Born April 22, 2013.

***Update June 2017:*** Laelia will not be part of the flock dispersal. In my ignorance, I fed some of my lambs corn over the winter of their lamb years, and several foundered, including Laelia. Her back pasterns have never fully recovered, and breeding is proving too much a burden for her. She is such a docile and gentle sheep that she will live out her days here as a wool pet

I love the build on this gal. Laelia has very square shoulders, and very straight front legs. (Both her mother Drea and father Ferdinand are the same way.) Her hindquarters are well built and straight too; not massive, but proportionally not small either. Her wool is probably the finest and softest of all the lambs this year. Her personality is mostly her mother’s; laid back, but curious. Not pushy, not attention seeking, but easy to catch and handle. She’s a character and just the cutest, sweetest looking thing. Laelia started out life as a preemie, and just has finally caught up this summer after a bit of a rough start.
