We purchased Whitey as a lamb with his mom, Brenny, from Rebecca Gunther at Jersey West Farm. Having a closely related flock, we wanted to expand our genetics and fleece colors. He is not at all friendly, to the point of being skittish, which is just how we would like him to be because he never challenges us or gets close during feedings. I am very interested in color genetics of sheep, but find them to be very confusing. Since adding Whitey to our flock, we have begun to have white lambs as well as some dark brown and tan. The lambs from one mom can be a mix of colors too - we've had twins that were one black, one white or one dark brown, one tan all with Whitey as the sire.
