Gilthanas was used as a replacement ram for 1 year at MBG Farm and then sold to a farm in Michigan. Jillian was so proud of her moorit ram with nice wide horns.

Eva had triplets in 2011. Jillian was in the barn observing and was so proud of herself because the third lamb was coming hind feet first, and she pulled her, saving the lamb :) And she made a prediction of which patterns she would get and she was correct! Good memories <3
Eva's 2009 Twins: Ceci (Above) & Caesar (below)
Cully - Jillian's beloved ram. She preferred to use him for breeding her ewes. He was very tame and a master at escaping and then returning himself to his pen by the time you got your boots on! But he was a good boy and always took his drenches willingly :)
Felicity's first lambs, were twins ewe & ram, in 2010. Jillian named them Kelly & Ryan, after characters from The Office tv show.
This is Felicity. Jillian went along to Blackhavens Farm in Southeastern Ohio, and bought this ewe with her babysitting money. She loved the white fleeces and used them for dyeing.
Felicity's 2011 lambs...Jillian observed this lambing too. She was so proud of Felicity and thrilled she got 2 ewe lambs! She named these girls Miranda & Reba
This is Tilly. Jillian chose her for her fleece also.
Tilly's 2011 ram lamb, Mathyas. Jillian carried him around like a baby doll.
