Same Sheep?

This is a picture of the first lamb born on our farm. I have been amazed by how much his color continues to change. When he was born, he almost seemed like he would be black. When the black started changing to brown, I could tell it was going to fade but I couldn't tell what was going to be under it. I was convinced it would be grey and it may be, but now.....the color has a taupe color. There is just enough brown that I think he may be considered musket. It is a beautiful color and his fleece is sooooo soft and uniform. Of course, he has bad horns. I've known for awhile that he would have to be cut but I think I will keep this guy just for his beautiful wool!
