Black mouflon horned ram. Carries moorit. Carries spotting. Born May 2, 2015.

I have high expectations for this ram lamb. Sting gave us Penny last year, who was just spectacular; she was extremely hardy and fast growing, and continued to grow well all through the winter. Laelia is a small, muscular brick of a sheep born on this farm. Both parents have excellent fleeces. Even at such a young age, this little ram looks very thickly built with excellent square conformation. His chest is broad and his shoulders muscular, and his hindquarters look like they are taking after his father’s; large and muscular with good spacing between very straight legs.

Birth Weight: 11 lbs.
