Fritz, an unusually marked lamb

This is Fritz. He was only 5 pounds at birth and we lost his tiny 3 pound brother. We think he's spotted moorit mouflon and he may also be gray. His face had more color on it before, but has really lightened up. See his picture in my blog from April. His mother, Andromeda, is especially friendly so he isn't very afraid of people. We probably have to wether him because he has started rubbing his head on us when we are out with the sheep. He has incredibly soft wool and would make a nice fiber wether.

I added the scratching picture to show his little colored tail. He really has neat markings.
