KMC 6043

Offered for sale as a registered pet Katahdin ewe $300

Big bodied chocolate ewe with white star, eight years old.  She is a great ewe with very strong EBVs, but hitting the end of the line with her udder health, so priced accordingly. She can probably raise one lamb adequately, two may be a push, so she should be monitored in future years. Sire is from Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, in Iowa). Dam traces back to KRK (Karen Kenagy, OR and Aspen Mountain (Aileen Scott, MT). Lambing record starting as a two year old: 2/1, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 3/2, 2/0. (2023: pulled one to orphan rear, then the other one perished from clostridium, which is not her fault.)

Photo taken May 2022. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data. This ewe has been genotyped.¬† This ewe’s lamb is weaned and she can go to a new home today.

Offered for sale as a purebred register-able Katahdin yearling ewe, $375

Graceful ewe with subtle red roan coloration; a very slick shedder. She has really strong EBVs across the board and is right on my cut list for keeping, but her milk score is a little modest for me. Sire is out of Birch Cove Genetics (David Coplen, Missouri). Dam is my genetics tracing back to Misty River farm (Mary Bakko, Moses Lake, now retired) and Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa).

Photo taken May 2023.  EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data run. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She can go now with her white ram lamb for an extra fee, or in July by herself when he is weaned.

KMC 5013

Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe (pet) $275

Flashy marked red pinto ewe. She has been a good mama, but is a “gummer” (she’s lost all her front teeth) so she can’t thrive on pasture alone anymore. She got very thin this winter and aborted twins early before I realized the reason. I have her in the barn and she’s fattened nicely on hay and grain; so she can do well in a pet home where she has access to feed year-round. She could probably even have more lambs just fine. Otherwise she’d make a sweet pasture ornament. Lambing record starting as a two year old: 2/2, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 1/1, 2/0.

EBVs from the 2023 lamb crop WWT data. Photo taken May 2023. She is open and can go to a new home today.

Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe $275

Tall and framey white ewe. Modest on growth and survival, but good milk and prolificacy scores. This ewe came from Mary Bakko’s place (Misty River Farm, Moses Lake) when she retired; and she is a fairly tame and very assertive girl. She can be a fearless ringleader at spotting an open gate and dashing through it while the others all follow, but is also helpful as a herd boss when you want the mob to go somewhere.¬† She has been a productive ewe, but missed lambing in 2021 and again this year, so she may be declining in productivity, this she’s priced as a pet. She’s healthy as a horse and in good weight, so she may be fine to lamb again for several years to come. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 3/3, 2/2, 3/3, 0/0, 1/1, 0/0

Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She is open and can go to a new home any time.

Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe $275

Classic white ewe. Good growth and modest milk and survival, and low on prolificacy, this girl tends towards singles, which is the main reason I’m dropping her. This pedigree captures Birch Cove Farm (David Coplen, Missouri), Carl Ginapp’s genetics (Iowa, now retired), Lynn Fahrmeier (Missouri), Dosch Katahdins ( South Dakota, now retired) and Misty River Farm (Mary Bakko Moses Lake, now retired).¬† She is a good mama, but her twins had disparate growth this year and I early-weaned one, so she may have a damaged udder and will need to be monitored if raising twins again. This she is priced as a pet. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 1/1, 1/1, 2/0, 2/2

Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2022 lamb crop EPWWT data. This ewe is NSIP genotyped. She has a white ram lamb at side that could go with her for an extra fee, or she can go solo in July when her lamb is weaned.

Offered for sale as a pet Katahdin ewe $275

Red baldface ewe with white socks and tail, good shedder. She is a good old mama. This year she was very sick post-birth, maybe toxemia, hypocalc or pneumonia. I nursed her through it and she is healthy now; but have priced her as a pet as she may need extra TLC as she gets older. She has very good EBVs across the board. Her dam is out of very old-stock PNW genetics including a Dorper way back there, sire is from Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, in Iowa). Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/0, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 2/1, 1/1, 2/2.

Photo taken May 2022. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data. This ewe has been genotyped.  This ewe can go now with her red ram lamb at side for an extra fee, or in July when he is weaned. (I orphaned and sold her other ram lamb to take some load off her.)

Offered for sale as a registered Katahdin ewe (pet) $275

Red brockle faced ewe, clean shedder. This is one of “The Madams”- 10 years old and still raising lambs. She should be able to continue to do so, I’m only dropping her because her EBVs are getting on the low side. She has a very old-school pedigree: White Post Farm (East Coast, now retired), Bert Martineau (one of the original Kat breeders in WA state, now retired), KRK (Karen Kenagy, OR), On the Lamb Farm (Sarah Jo Gahm, Arlington). Even PAS28L, so common in PNW pedigrees of yore. Lambing record starting as a two year old: 2/2, 2/2, 3/2, 3/2, 2/2, 3/0, 3/2, 2/1, 2/1. The last two years she was rearing lambs fine but lost one of twins each year to clostridium, which is not her fault.¬† Price just reflects her age, but I expect she could still raise twins for a few more years if given the chance and fed well, her udder is healthy.

EBVs from the 2023 lamb crop WWT data. Photo taken May 2023. She has a white ram lamb at side that can go with her for an extra fee, or she can go when he is weaned in July.

Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1.

Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe, $300

Red baldface ewe with white hind socks. Strong growth and prolificacy¬† EBVs but more modest on survival and milk. Pedigree has Birch Cove (David Coplen, Missouri), Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, Iowa), Misty Oaks Farm (Kathy Bielek, OH) and some local genetics. This mama is super maternal. This year she aborted twins a bit early and I was able to graft another lamb onto her easily, she loves having babies. But last year and this, despite a large udder, I’m feeling like she may not have that great of milk quantity and maybe should only raise a single or twins, at most, with readiness to supplement. So I’ve discounted her a bit because of that; she’d do best in a small homestead farm that feeds well and keeps close tabs on things. As you can see from the photo, she’s carrying great condition herself, she’s fat as a seal. Lambing record starting as a 2-year old: 2/2, 1/1, 4/2, 2/1.

Photo taken May 2023. EBVs from 2023 lamb crop WWT data.¬† She is NSIP genotyped. Her lamb is weaned and she’s ready to go to a new home today.
