PFR 801

Pitchfork was lucky enough to be named Supreme at two shows this fall. At left  is pictured PFR 801, a natural-colored Romney ram lamb, who won the NC Long Wool Ram before being selected as Best NC Fleece and then Supreme NC Fleece at the 2014 New York Sheep and Wool Festival held in Rhinebeck in October.

PFR 805

Stylish later-born ewe lamb showing lots of promise for show and breeding. The black factor on the sire side is six generations back; grand sire is Kapa 9-97. On the dam side, the grand dam is a BB Moosehill ewe.  This girl is just coming into her fleece, and it is going to be a nice one: on the denser side, yet showing distinct lock and crimp. Good black points, square built and solid with good length and width of loin, she will show well as a yearling and perform wonderfully as a brood ewe.  See her fleece and pedigree below.
