Moorit grey horned ram. May carry spotting. Born May 15, 2015.

This breeding is rather anticipated; April gave us one of the most muscular ram lambs of the season when paired with Ferdinand, but she carries at least one very tight horn gene from her mother, and gave that to her ram lamb. He was culled for very tight horns. This year we used Ferdinand’s son, who has finer, more wideswept horns that we hope will contribute to workable horns in this ram lamb. If his horns turn out, he will be a very well built, muscular ram; even at this young age, he is a little chunker. He has a very long body, longest of any of the lambs this season, with plenty of muscle over it. He also inherited his father’s large, muscular hindquarters by the looks of it. There’s plenty there in the back end. Personality wise, he is shaping up to be his father; not pushy, but curious. Low key, easy to handle. Doesn’t crave attention but doesn’t mind it either.
