Moorit homozygous grey horned ram. Born May 2, 2014.
This fellow was born at over 11 pounds without assistance, and looked like a brick at even a few hours old. He is such a muscular little guy! As he has grown, he has only gotten thicker in the muscle department. He has wide shoulders and a wide rump with nice muscling over both and along his back. His conformation reflects his mother’s most closely, though both parents are quite well muscled and were growthy as lambs. (His full brother Jackelope, from last year, has matured into a compact and muscular ram with a solid build.) The Brick’s horns look nice so far. They definitely have that thickness to them that Ferdinand tends to throw. He has good straight legs and is fairly long bodied. His temperament is more his mother’s; he is rather excitable. His full brother, Jackelope, from last year has proven to have a very even temperament and is well mannered on a lead, or when I need to work with him. He was rather excitable as a lamb too, so I suspect The Brick will also calm down with age.
Birth weight: 11 lbs 8 oz.
60 day weight: 61 pounds.
