Hi Deb, I might be able to help with some of the genetics info you're looking for. I have a small flock of Shetland and Ryeland sheep (in the UK), and I've studied their bloodlines in some detail. My OH, a mathametician, has written a software program to analyse their genetic interrelatedness. The program could modified for larger data sets, or for other breeds of sheep. We'd be delighted to share this with you and help out with your research if we can.

Karen, this is fantastic, and I’ve been working on finding contact information on you. No luck yet through the Ryeland or Shetland breed societies in the UK. I’m deb at drobson dot info and I hope no robots can read that {wry grin} and that there’s some way you see this message.

Thanks for the update! Well done on the fundraising :) Sounds like you're having quite the wooly adventure! If you, you know, need someone to carry bales of wool, I'm available, ha ha!
