Black solid horned ewe. Carries moorit. Carries spotting. Born April 28, 2016.

Njola has almost exclusively taken after her father in pretty much every respect. She has the huge rump and very straight hind legs that run in that Lundi line, that I’m so fond of. Her legs are also proportionally rather long, though she is going through her gangly stage that accentuates it. She looks nothing like her stump-legged mother in that respect. When she stands next to her peers, she is no shorter over the back; I’d say she runs about average for back length. But she stands several inches taller, which makes her look shorter backed. She has been extremely hardy and never needed worming, one of the other traits that I love so much from that Lundi line. Her wool also seems to be the softer, fine wool of that line, though Laelia too has very soft wool.
