2009 was the year for cookie cutter boys. Most people don't see how I can tell them apart, but if you have animals, you understand. Gahanna and his brother Key Lago are so very much the same. The fiber is almost identical, but Gahanna has his mother's shorter stature. But since his mom and Lago's mom are mother and daughter, it explains alot.

As the 2009 crop of boys gets older, they are getting better with age. The fleece, the look, all of it just like dad. Gahanna has the fleece that you just want to melt into. His sire sheared over 13# last year. First year fleeces don't always tell the whole story, but another sibling had a first year fleece of almost 8 pounds! So we are looking forward to the shearing to see just how much they will produce. Gahanna successfully settled his first two girl the spring of 2013.

We would like to see this boy go somewhere that he could be used. Too many of his aunts, sisters and relatives live on our farm and he just doesn't have a lot of breeding options.
