It will be a while before I can easily tell our new sheep Asher and Issachar apart. But one does have darker wool and a white streak on his nose.
When we opened the gate and let the sheep out of the pole barn after shearing, Asher and Issachar seemed like they had always been on the farm.
Asher and Issachar are a mix of Cormo/Romney and Blue Face Leicester. They’re smaller than the Romneys we have. They’re only two years old so they’ll probably fill out a little more, but right now they have long legs that make them almost more like deer than sheep.
See them join the flock (with my newly shorn sheep) for the first time in the video below…
