Lilja was very kindly gifted to me along with our other Icelandic ewe Spud. She is an elderly lady at 12 years old and is all gums having lost all her front teeth but she manages to do well always making sure she gets the lions share of the food! Lilja is a real character, a proper individual and one off. She keeps all the other sheep in check by flicking them with a front leg and nobody messes with her when it comes to food, she has knocked me off my feet a couple of times to get her dinner! Her knick name has become Stompy, she likes to stomp her feet a lot and charge anything she sees as a threat like an unsuspecting cat or small dog!
Colour genetics – tricky.. possibly black base with extensive white spotting or black base with a white pattern. The only way to tell would be by looking at her offspring but I won’t be letting Lilja meet any rams at 12 years old and toothless it wouldn’t be the best idea!
