This ewe lamb was born to our prized ewe from whom we built most of our flock. Her offspring are consistently strong and healthy, with great conformation and growth. They are also mildly mannered and easy to handle. After birth, she and her twin brother were upright and nursing within minutes. She is sired by our purebred Katahdin ram. Both Dam and Sire are pictured.
Her coat is white, with black freckles on her nose and fetlocks, as well as black hooves. She should have a nice coat for winter, and an easy time shedding in the spring. She is a great size and conformation to consider breeding this fall.
Our lambs are raised on high quality feed and are efficient foragers and weight gainers. Our flock has a high resistance to parasites and have tested negative for Johne's disease, Lentivirus (CAE/OPP), and Mycoplasma Ovipneumoniae on an annual basis. Hooves are genetically sound and strong.
No pesticides are used on our pasture. We have not needed to administer any de-wormer, antibiotics, or insecticide. Selenium paste has been administered and they have free access to mineral salts and sea kelp. CD& T was given at weaning (June 10th), and boosted on July 14th.
$100 deposit required. For an additional fee, we can breed her to a completely unrelated (we do not line breed) purebred Dorper ram
