Offered for sale as a registered ewe $375, exposed to a ram
A full-bodied white ewe, clean shedder, friendly. Her dam had mastitis on one side, trying to raise twins as a yearling, so this one ended up mostly being an orphan-rear (though not really a “bottle baby” because I teach them to drink off of a teat bucket right away). She is a product of an unplanned late breeding from a cleanup ram, and thus she is somewhat inbred, her sire is also her maternal grandsire. Thus I have discounted her slightly. But the rest of her pedigree is outcrossed between KRK (Oregon), Birch Cove Farm (Missouri), and the now-retired Misty River Farm (Spokane); so I don’t expect her progeny to be too bottlenecked. She had positive growth and NLB scores, a little lower on milk and survival; but should generally be a good mother who consistently raises twins, with occasional triplets.
