Offered for sale as a registered yearling ewe $275
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. 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.
