Adding another breed


 

        Russ and Susan Waples added another breed of sheep to
their herd last week. After a 12-hour drive to Havre, Mont.,
the couple, who live in the northwest outskirts of Terry,
returned home with two ewes and one buck of the Tunis breed. 
With a smile Russ quipped, “We’re hoping to get a whole herd of ‘em.” 
The Tunis breed’s most identifiable features include their cream-colored
wool and reddish colored legs and face. Known as one of the oldest breeds of
sheep, the tunis breed is also recognized for its smaller features — one quality
the Waples said that drew them to this breed. 
Other breeds in the Waples herd include Suffolk and North Country Cheviot.
