Offered for sale as a registered ewe with ewelamb at side $550

This is a pretty red ewe with classic Katahdin type and a very full rumen capacity built just for forage.  She has been a good mother, but has had a couple of bad luck incidents. She lost one of her twins her first year due to clostridium. This year, one of her twins died suddenly from something, either clostridium, accident or toxic plant exposure. He was a big, healthy ram and had a stomach full of milk, so something killed him quick not long after he had a good meal. 🙁 I don’t hold either loss against her; and am only reluctantly letting her go because she is five and on the lower end of the EBV index. She has moderate EBVs across the board and is a little low on milk, but raised triplets successfully in 2018. She can make someone a good foundation stock ewe and should lamb for another five+ years easily. Her pedigree is mostly KRK, but her maternal grandsire is from very old Washington Kathadin stock- Bert Martineau’s line; which is now retired.

Photo taken January 2019 when she was pregnant, photo below with her remaining big red ewelamb (she is in the process of shedding now, but is a very clean shedder and will look great in another month!)  EBVs from 2019 lamb crop birth data.  Lambing record starting as a two-year-old: 2/1, 2/2, 3/3, 2/1. She can go with her ewelamb at side (sired by KMC7018), or solo in August when her lamb is weaned.
