A Word From the Author:
"North Ronaldsays come in a variety of types, as do the Shetlands, although what’s interesting here is it seems that some of the variation in fleece type goes along with variation in color. Genetics are so complex that if you change one thing that you mean to change, then you maybe change another thing that you don’t mean to change." — Deborah Robson
