Moorit solid horned ewe. Carries spotting. Born May 9, 2016.

“Grima” means “face mask”, and she is so named for the adorable flashing she was born with on her face. Her mother Felicite has been a wonderful all around sheep for us; long in the body with large hindquarters. She did not even have difficulty whatsoever during her first birth last year. She has been hardy as well; I have never had to worm her. I can say the same for Sting, Grima’s father. Grima should be hardy and well built from this combination. Both are also known for throwing good horns, with Felicite’s line consistently improving horns even from tighter parents. Felicite’s full brother is TC.
