4A Lilija/Ferdinand Ram “CBS”: Will not be registered

CBS at 60 days old. 06.12.2013.

Black grey frosted mouflon horned ram. Carries moorit, may carry spotting. Born April 15, 2012.

CBS is the firstborn of the flock this year. He was born a whopping 10.5 lbs. He is an extremely robust and active lamb, and is growing extremely well. His build and horns look every bit his father, though his longer legs are more reminiscent of his mother. He has his father’s large bone structure. CBS will not be registered due to his mother’s underbite. Though we can’t totally rule out environmental reasons for the underbite, neither can we rule out genetic. If it is genetic, then she is homozygous for the trait, and her son will carry a recessive copy of it. He will not be affected, but if ever he is bred to a ewe with the same hidden trait, the underbite will reemerge. I do not want that perpetuated.
