Moni was born to our Shetland sheep Jocko and Mona in April 2007.
Here she is one month later.
And with lead training that July.
Here is John showing her at the Skagit County Fair one month later.
She was also shown at the Puyallup Fair that year and won 2nd place Shetland ewe lamb, first place young flock and get of sire and 1st place ewe lambs with Amanda. She also won first place Ladies lead junior. John Park bought her after that, and here is her fleece at the Black Sheep Gathering 1 year later.
John kept Moni until 2010 when she came back here. She still had amazing fleeces. here are her locks from her 2011 fleece.
And this continued until 2016.
Here she is in 2016 at 9+ years old.
But then her health and wool declined.
This spring she became thinner and less active. She then lost interest in eating and today she died. It is a sad day here at Schoonover Farm.
