I bought Huffle and her brother Griffin in June 2020 after seeing them advertised for sale online. Their dad is a ‘Spitti’ Valais Blacknose ram and their mum is a black/coloured Blue Face Leicester. I’ve wanted to add a coloured Blue Face Leicester to the flock for some time but when I saw these two I just couldn’t resist them instead. I spent some of my own savings on buying them. I’m not the sort of person who buys clothes or shoes or handbags or items for our home. I typically end up buying a sheep or 2 if I decide to treat myself. Huffle and her brother Griffin will have a home for life here with our other sheep. I’m very intrigued to watch them grown and see them as adult sheep. When they first arrived Huffle was very noisy and shy. But she very soon settled down and came out of her shell. She is a very affectionate friendly lamb now. She and her bro’s name have a bit of a ‘Harry Potter’ theme to them, like some of our other sheep. I’m not a big fan of Harry Potter or anything but I do love the names that pop up. Huffle’s fleece is quite different from her brothers. It is fairly open and crimpy. I don’t imagine it will be a very soft fleece when she is an adult but as a wool addict, I’m super interested to see how their fleeces grow and put them to good use.
