Ruthie is the first cria out of our girl Rosie, who is a farm favorite. Rosie and her mother Friday are out two best PR animals--when they are open--and we're hoping Ruthie has inherited their wonderful personality. Her mother and grandmother are also both great mothers, which is another heritable trait!
Ruthie is a beautiful dark brown with black shading on her feet, ears, and nose. She has a cute and inquisitive look about her! Her fleece is coming in with average density, and is soft with a nice handle.
Ruthie has a great lineage that includes PPeruvian Timoteo, Pperuvian Felix, Rosario, and 5Peruvian Quicksilver.
Ruthie is named for Ruth Fulton Benedict Benedict, an American social scientist who helped lay the foundation of modern anthropology. Building on the work of Franz Boas in exploring the relationship of individuals to their cultures, her fieldwork among Native Americans, and her studies of contemporary European and Asian culturesm led her to emphasize concepts of cultural configuration, national character, and the relationship between individual personality and culture. Her highly influential books, including Patterns of Culture (1934) and The Chrysanthemum and the Sword: Patterns of Japanese Culture (1946), popularized the anthropological concept of culture, even as they attacked racism and ethnocentrism.
