ALX AZALEA B4H 15B: -[CAN]714979-H

Azalea Nov. 2, 2015

Black mouflon horned ewe. Carries spotting. Carries moorit. Born April 20, 2014.

For having a less than perfect start to life, Azalea has grown out pretty well. Her mother did not make enough milk, so she was a semi-bottle baby. Since her rumen has kicked in, she has picked up her growth. For her small size, she has decent muscling and a square and sound frame. I think she will catch up nicely with the rest of the lambs as she ages. She has the wide square hindquarters of her father, it appears. She is long legged. She has an exceptionally calm and docile temperament. She is not easily disturbed, and not prone to being startled. Her horns looks spectacular so far.
