Starry Starry Knight (NFS)

 I have a new little love.  Starry is a chestnut doe from Winter Knight and Sloans Stella.  




The Dark Knight (NFS)

Hoping that this will be my next herdsire.  He has all the makings at 7 weeks.  Short shoulders, smooth hindquarters, deep body, high point at the hip. I have never used a black before, but he caught my eye even in the nest.  He should be aaBbCcD-E-   Sire is MRR Winter Knight  Dam: Mustang Shelby

WoolaRama wins

 I attended the WoolaRama UARC angora specialty this past weekend, and swept the Satin Angora classes in all 4 shows.   I had BOB with both Somerhill Spirit and pending GrCH Somerhill Silent Knight, and BOS with Somerhill Knights in White Satin.  

BOB with Spirit, white SR doe.  She did it again on day 2.

judging the white classes.  Spirit in front, with
Knight being examined before placing him BOV and then BOS.

One of 2 shows in which Silent was BOB.  


New Grand Champion (pending) Somerhill Silent Knight

A chocolate agouti daughter of MRR Winter Knight and Somerhill Firebird, she just finished her championship shy of 6 months, winning BOB twice at the WoolaRama this weekend.

Shelby's kits

Knight and Mustang Shelby's babies are getting bigger, too.  I think they are all bucks - 1 black and 2 coppers.  I will most likely retain one, and the other two will be available in a few weeks.   Naturally, the black will be Somerhill Dark Knight.  These will be the last of the MMR Winter Knight offspring from Somerhill.
