Offered for sale as a registered ewe $375, exposed to a ram
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. In 2019, 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 four+ 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 from winter 2018. EBVs from 2019 lamb crop PWWT data. Lambing record starting as a two-year-old: 2/1, 2/2, 3/3, 2/1. This ewe has been exposed to a ram (KMC 19098) and is due in March 2020. She will likely twin, so this is a great opportunity to potentially get three for the price of one!
