2016 Breeding Groups

There will be two rams used this year; Mr.Moufknutts and Sting. The following are their groups.

……………………………………………………………………………………………
……………………………………………………………………………………………

Breeding Ram: Sting

Sting at a year and a half old, taken 09.26.2013.

Sting (CLRC Number: -[CAN]685091-H) is an extremely handsome ram with the best hindquarters on the farm. They are huge, wide, and straight. He is average across the chest and back, but well put together for an overall very aesthetic presentation. His conformation is very correct. His wool is superb, and is thus far non silvering. he also has the most distinct mouflon pattern I have seen, with a very nice spotting pattern to accent it. He is black and potentially carries moorit from his father (50% chance), but as he’s never had any offspring yet, we don’t know for certain.
