Miracle girl Sally
Shangrilah Sally was a complete surprise as we thought her dam, Birrong Swan Song, couldnt have babies but gave birth to her first, Sally, at 8 years old. Sally was not even 4kg at birth but is a survivor. Her sire is Surilana Donaldo.
Sally at 4 months
Very pleased with how Sally is coming along after her tiny start. The rainy day does not show off her fleece at its best but can still see the lustre despite the dull day and given she does not like photo shoots.

Shangrilah Raja 7 months
Raja is a good quality BC1 (2nd cross) suri with a particularly nice fleece. We do not breed with males that are crosses, so Raja is destined to be a wether, but we will none the less be interested to see his fleece stats later in the year.
