Messing Texel Story
Our flock is a closed flock , no new sheep are introduced , we do not go to live sheep shows. If necessary we replace sold animals but do not take them back.

In the last few years we have introduced new bloodlines with the help of Ian Clark (Dutch Texel ram semen) and Steve Jones (British bloodlines). We had another first in North America , we think, last year a blue texel ram lamb was born out of to white registered animals . This, according to the internet, is very rare both parents have to be carrier of the recessive blue gene and than you have a chance that one out of four lambs is blue. If someone knows of another blue texel in Canada or the U.S.A. please let us know.
