Yeti was a very balanced, moderate ram across the board, no extremes here. He was a very pretty Hereford-red ram with a long body and muscular hindquarters. A moderate-sized adult and very calm and easy to handle. His maternal side captures genetics from David Coplen’s Birch Cove Farm in Missouri, where heavy selection pressure is placed on easy-care pasture-raised sheep with measured parasite resistance, coming from a long line of NSIP-focused breeding programs. His sire traced back to local genetics, including a lot of old-stock WA genetics like Bert Martineau’s line. I used this ram for two years (2015-2016 winters) and got some good lambs out of him.
