Offered for sale as a registered ewe $300
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 June 2019. EBVs from 2019 lamb crop WWT data. Lambing record starting as a two-year-old: 2/1, 2/2, 3/3, 2/1. Her lamb is weaned and she is ready to go to a new home today.
