We have loved the Serkur line for years now and when I
had the chance to give this old gal a new home, I was happy
to bring her to the farm. If you were 11 years old you'd be
kind of ratty looking too! The Serkur gals are always milky
and great moms. I just love the old ewes that are smart
enough, and hardy enough to live this long.
Sadly "Ma" passed away on March 16th, 2012 at the
age of 12 years. I will keep her information here as
reference to her daughter below and hopefully we'll be
able to add grandchildren in the future.
I value these old gals so much and it's so hard to say
goodbye to them.

This 2011 ewe lamb was born to 11 year old "Ma."
She was born with an amazing amount of phaeomelanin
(see photo at left).
I wish she had retained the unique coloring, but she faded out. In fact, the odd thing is
her face went from white to reddish and her body faded from red to white!
Rosie is shown above at 18 months of age. She's grown into
a stunning ewe. She lambs unassisted and has beautiful babies.
Update: Rosie lambed on April 28th.
Goodbye "Ma"... you will be missed...
