Hi, me again, we had a lull and I had a chance to read some of the responses
your question. If you look back in the Spring 2000 Pomona, you will see that I
make a reference to Sheepnose. I've seen one and it was as you described it to
be. I will check my ref. books, I beleive sheepnose was widely used to
apples with similar form. These, I seem to recall, included Black Gilliflower
and Yellow Bellflower. I will check to be sure and get back to you
