Alfalfa is a favorite of mine. But then I'm pretty fickle when it comes to my sheep. Alfalfa is a four year old wether. He is a Lincoln x California Variegated Mutant cross and has the most sweet disposition. As a wether, his focus is on growing gorgeous fleeces and he indeed excels at this. The CVM characteristics show in the varied colors that are seen in his fleece. I describe his fleece color as a medium gray heather. This heathery quality gives yarns spun from his wool great depth of color. Even if I had never met Alfalfa I would have loved his fleece. But, I'm really glad he's one of my flock members.
