Black grey horned ewe. Carries moorit. May carry spotting. Born May 15, 2015.

Tacca (pronounced “Tah-kah”) is named after a black orchid called the bat orchid. I thought it fitting since her mother is also named after an orchid. Tacca, like her sister, is a very sweet and curious lamb who loves attention, yet isn’t pushy about it. She and her sister are some of the best built lambs of this season. Both have those muscular, wideset hindquarters that I like so much and which are the heritage of the Lundi line, (Which includes Sting, Flosi, and Cattleya) as well as the Thunder line (which includes Felicite, Isadore, and TC.) She’s got broad shoulders and a substantial, well set chest, with a broad back and wellsprung ribs leading to a muscular hind end.
