Pedigree Shetland tup lambs, Mid-Wales

As there was some interest expressed on an earlier thread, just posting to say I have lots of ram lambs from this year's lambing (which is good, because my freezer is empty), and a few of them seem rather nice, if someone local were interested.  Three in particular catch my eye:

1) Pure black, twin, nice horns, correct tail.  Dam Thorsgill Coriander (pure black, nice fleece, doesn't roo at all), sire Cil Wenllan Galileo (grey katmoget, nice fleece, roos heavily).

2) Moorit, twin, with splashes of cream on face and side, nice horns, correct tail.  Dam Caradoc Fudge (fawn, nice fleece, doesn't roo but her daughters do), sire Felinrhyd Garlic (fawn katmoget sokket, nice fleece roos somewhat).

3) Dark grey katmoget, single, with some reddish bits on face and legs, is either polled or very late to start horns, correct tail.  Dam Thorsgill Thyme (dark grey katmoget, nice fleece, roos somewhat), sire Cil Wenllan Galileo (as above).

There are also fawn katmogets and whites but the three above are the ones that stand out to me.  I don't show but my flock has been evaluated by the breed society representative and ram inspector for my region, and the rams used as sires were chosen on her advice.  If there is interest, happy to provide photos and/or for people to come view.  They're not currently registered as there's no point if they're going in the freezer, but I'd register them before sale.

I might be interested in one.
Could we sort out a time I could visit.

How easily handled are they?

They're a bit wild as they're too young to have been handled much yet (aside from their first dose of Heptavac), but they'll come along when their mothers come to the bucket, and we can grab them in the pen easily enough.  Most any time you'd like to visit would be fine, I'm nearly always here.  Just PM when you'd like to come and I'll give you directions.

Thank you.
It'll have to wait a few weeks if that's alright I'm trying to get organised on building field shelters and revamping a shed before harvest time.
