Short Description from Hamish Black: Flash has the longer body constitution. He tends to throw lambs which are the medium=dark grey Gotland color. He has the best wool of the three rams and hence you should use him on ewes where improvement is needed on wool quality. Flash also has the heaviest wool weights of the three rams.

Short Description from Hamish Black: Hoppy has a more solid or nuggety constitution to the other Gotland rams which can have a longer body. Hence, he tends to produce more nugget offpsring which is important at home on the farm as these offspring are the type that tend to fatten to prime condition earlier. Hoppy has the shortest wool staple length of the three.
