This is Kara (Turkish for "dark" or "black"), because of the dark mask on his face. Kara, pronounced "CAR-uh," is a 10-month-old male from a village about an hour south of Ankara (capitol city of Turkey). Last month (early January), I made my second trip to Turkey. I was very impressed with this huge boy. He is playful and loving. Seen here in these four pictures from Turkey, he is used to chickens and to sheep flocks that passed by, and at times would mingle with the flocks. I am proud to introduce him as an anticipated breeding male at Shepherds Rest Farm! He will have his first preliminary hip x-rays on March 13 when he is one year old.
