3Z Lilija/ Freyr Ram “Sam”: Will not be registered

“Sam”: Registration Pending

Sam at 35 days (5 weeks) old, taken May 28, 2012.

Black solid horned ram. Carries moorit and spotting. Born April 23, 2012.

Sam is a black ram lamb born to Lilija and Freyr. He has very dense wool, a long body, and thick bone structure like his father Freyr. He’s been growing well and is a solid little ram. He has a very outgoing personality like his mother. His horns are developing well, and continue to grow outward nicely. It is unknown whether he got his father’s polled or horned gene, as Freyr’s polled gene doesn’t seem to affect ram horn growth and is indistinguishable from a fully horned ram’s horns. He got a horned gene from his fully horned mother.

For his adult profile, go to the Meet the Rams page.
