    Could just be the holidays too. I've not encountered the breed at all here in E Ontario. I suppose you've already read the OK state University entry for them but if you haven't, Click here

    I have been told, by a friend that they are fair sized and gentle.
    Was given a sample of their fleece, and it looks like it would be nice to spin for an outer garmet.
    Pretty sheep.

    I have been playing with Clun Forest wool recently and I'm quite fond of it.
    It's easy to work with and "bouncy". A great all-round wool.
