Maple Ridge Chablis - 1995 Musket Mullit Ewe -S10190 This girl was our first registered Shetland - her silky long primitive fleece was the stuff of dreams. We no longer bred her - she was "Granny" to all of our lambs! Her personality is what hooked us on Shetlands. We lost Chablis spring '09
Painted Knoll Piscataquog - 2009 Black Katmoget Ewe - S29830 Windswept Grace Slick x PaintedKnoll Kentaurus A daughter of our Ken and Grace Slick. This girl is striking and was certainly a surprise with her spots! This girl has matured into a good natured and great addition to our permanent flock, producing incredible show quality lambs time and time again.
Painted Knoll Picassic - 4/21/09 Fawn Gulmoget Ewe - S29829 PaintedKnoll Trisket x SheltrgPies Mitch This brightly marked gulmoget is correct and a real treasure. She was born with a large krunet spot on her head which has faded, but she is carrying spots, and seems to pass that along to her lambs. A handsome adult with a real treasure of a fleece that microns at 23.4.
PaintedKnoll Chickwolnepy - 2010 Black Katmoget/Sokket Ewe - S30905 PaintedKnoll Capella x PaintedKnoll Kentaurus This little girl is from a favorite blood line and who could possibly resist her? We kept her over to see if she follows in her exalted mother and grandmother's footsteps. She certainly has and we are very pleased with her.
Pasttime Gumdrop - 4/14/17 Blk Gulmoget Ewe - S46236 Pasttime Licorice x Pasttime Herald The sun in this photo is bleaching her fleece but she is black as night with lovely spotting on her face and her white gulmoget markings. The first one to greet everyone, she is super friendly, especially if you are holding a treat.
Red Horse Freckles - 4/23/16 Musket Gulmoget Ewe - S43888 Red Horse Gladis Knight x Shadow Dance Prince I am always a sucker for a cute face. An excellent mother producing gorgeous lambs. Friendly with a soft fleece and very nice conformation.She just lives to get a cuddle or two every time someone is out in the pasture.
Red Horse Filene - 5/21/11 ag Gray Ewe - S36078 Red Horse Violet x Red Horse Willy A proven and handsome small ewe. I really liked her and jumped at the chance to have her join my flock. This photo just does not do her looks justice - I need to get a better photo!
PaintedKnoll Avalon - 4/27/16 Black Katomoget Ewe - S43486 PaintedKnoll Chickwolnepy x Summer Hill Nevada This girl with her super soft, even, dense fleece is a winner though it is hard to tell that she is katmoget in this photo. In person however all the proper markings are in place even though in this heavily spotted ewe her markings are mostly covered by white. A great mother and producer of correct lovely lambs.
Mapleton Bethlehem Star - 4/09 Moorit Katmoget Ewe - S29930 Minwawe Cha Cha x high Bid Kermit This beautiful older gal with her perfect brown katmoget markings and incredible soft even fleece was a welcome addition to our flock. We hope 'Lilly" will be around for many years.
Summer Hill Laila - 04/10/13 Moorit Ewe - S47457 Mapleton Bethlehem Star x Can Too Cherokee A solid moorit ewe with a lovely even fleece who has produced seriously great lambs for us. Not a young lady by any means but one who just seems to never change.
PaintedKnoll Peregrine - 04/18/18 Moorit Gulmoget ewe - S47778 PaintedKnoll Piscassic x Pastime Hershey This lovely little ewe is out of our very own Cassie. A great mother producing amazing lambs that are correct and friendly with lovely fleeces.
Summer Hill Nahla - 4/23/15 Black spotted katmoget - S47459 Bellwether Sneug x Twin Springs Nellie This gorgeous ewe keeps producing amazingly marked lambs. In fact one of her lambs is our PaintedKnoll Condor, a stunning ram. We also really enjoy her fleece and fun personality.
PaintedKnoll Smile - 4/19/20 Moorit ewe - S51454 Mapleton Bethlehem Star x Chantilly Camelot We kept this little girl as she is the first get out of Chantilly Camelot and we wanted to see how she grew and matured. A nicely put together little ewe with a heavenly soft fleece. She will go into the breeding pen Fall of 2021.
Chantilly Tiara - 5/2/10 Mioget Krunet ewe - S50479 Ewe's Have It Kayla x Wintertime Eminem I love this super cute ewe. She is put together nicely and her fleece is incredible. Her first lambing spring of 2021 was great. She is a good mother and produced a lovely ewe lamb that was exceedingly correct with a very even soft fleece.
PaintedKnoll Glee - 4/12/2020 Black ewe - S51453 Red Horse Filene x PaintedKnoll Condor We had to keep this little solid black ewe as we have no other solid blacks in the flock, but besides that she is absolutely glued to anyone who goes out in the pasture. She need to get some scratches and hugs every time she sees a human. Clearly I need to get a current photo.
Chantilly Camelot - 05/05/2019 Mioget Ram - S50855 Winter Sky Kashmir x Chantilly Excalibur Lovely soft crimpy mioget fleece and really nice conformation. His first get were fantastic and we can't wait to keep using him in the breeding pen. We discovered with 2021 lambs that this boy carries the polled gene.
PaintedKnoll Condor - 4/13/18 Black, katmoget, blesset, sokket - Single ram - S47777 Summer Hill Nahla x Red Horse Duke Once we saw the markings and conformation on this ram lamb we decided that we just had to use him one year to see what he could produce. The experiment was a success! A son of a favorite ram and striking dam.
