Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe $670 with lambs at side through May 16th
Beautiful red ewe, well put together and nice-shedding hair coat. Moderate frame size. Positive growth EBVs, lower on milk and survival, and quite low on prolificacy. She’ll likely steer clear of triplets. Pedigree is a blend of Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired), White Post Farm (East Coast, now retired) and hardy, old-stock local genetics, including a ram out of the old Bert Martineau line, one of the original Washington State Katahdin commercial flocks. Breeding record starting as a two-year-old: 2/2, 1/1, 1/1, 2/2.
Photo was taken November 2020. EBVs from 2020 lamb crop PWWT data. This ewe has twin lambs at side. They are both very dark mahogany color, the ewelamb has a white krunet face marking, and the ram lamb has a white star. Price good through mid-May, then it will adjust up to reflect the size/age of her lambs. Current price reflects dam as registered, ewelamb as register-able, and ram lamb as commercial. $100 more (now or later) for ram lamb registration. Picture below of them nicely bedded down by their dam while she grazes:
