My Golden Sheep

Today I was admiring my remaining mioget Shetland sheep.  They were looking good in the sunshine, and they are not sun-bleached yet.

    I’m fascinated with your golden sheep! I tried to look them up online – no luck. That word “mioget” would not come up at all. Miniature was all over the place, though. But I couldn’t make a connection to what you pictured. Yours are beautiful!

    Do the ewes not get horns? The curly horns on the fellas are something else! Especially those of BamBam Too!

    I hope you and Tom are having a good day! It’s 86 degrees here at 2:00. Too warm for me!! I did go out for a walk around the block when it was 83, and that was too warm. I won’t be doing that again!

    the golden sheep all look so fresh and spring-y in the sun. 🙂 did you have all their wool processed into a big batch of mioget roving this year?

    Hi Donna! Is mioget the word for midget? I was disappointed that you didn’t reply to my questions. I would love to see your sheep. I gathered that the mioget sheep are small, for sheep. Is their wool different from what your other sheep have? – Nothing like being a pest!

      Hi Jeanne. I emailed you my response from 5/31. I am sorry you did not get it initially. Mioget is a golden brown wool color seen in Shetland sheep. It is genetically recessive so tricky to breed for but I love it!
