Black mouflon horned ram. Carries spotting. Likely homozygous black. Born April 3, 2016.

Mr.Moufknutts was bought from Rock Farm in Illinois, as a way to add some new blood to the flock. We were getting an awful lot of the Lundi line in the flock. They are such great, hardy sheep that we keep retaining sheep from that line. Cattleya, Flosi, and Sting all trace to that same Lundi son, and then I have kept offspring from each. I think Mr.Moufknutts (named by my husband, can you tell?) will complement this line quite well. He is long backed and short legged. The Lundi line tends to be a bit more average-length over the back and long legged, so it would be nice to balance it out a bit. Mr.Moufknutts has those nice wide hindquarters that I love to see in sheep, which perpetuates very readily in the Lundi line, and which I wanted to make sure not to lose. Mr.Moufknutts has great horns too, and his father maintained workable horns even at four years old. So I hope that he also perpetuates good horns.

He did excellent his first breeding season; everyone was covered. He lost some weight, but gained it back and then some by spring. Included are some pictures below of him just as he turned a year old, and shortly after being rooed. He is a stocky and muscular fellow! He also rooed out very cleanly and with almost no effort on my part. It literally took five minutes, as I just helped along his fleece that was half peeled off on its own already. We continue to be pleased with this fellow.
