Offered for sale as a pet Katahdin ewe $275

This girl is at the end of her line for raising lambs, her milk supply is too compromised to even raise one lamb successfully. She came from Mary Bakko in Moses Lake, who retired from sheep a few years ago.  She was part of a smaller flock and she is very gentle and calm. She should live well into her teens, and would like to retire at a pet home! Photo taken June 2022.

Nice white ewe with strong and balanced EBVs across the board. Really good maternal behavior, but she’s got compromised milk production,  due to subclinical mastitis developing over the last three years. So if she’s bred again, her lambs will need to be trained to supplement off a teat bucket. Otherwise she’ll make a nice pasture pet. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/1, 2/0, 2/0.

Photo taken May 2022. EBVs from 2022 WWT lamb crop data. She had a nice ewelamb this year (see lamb here), born 5/8/22,  that I let nurse on the dam but also supplemented with a teat bucket. She is now weaned onto creep and will be sold independently. This mama is dried off and can go to a new home at any time.

Offered for sale as a pet Katahdin ewe $275

Beautiful buckskin ewe with a brockle face. She hasn’t lambed in three seasons, so must be one of those rare ones that’s got a fertility problem and is not likely to ever conceive. Selling her at pet/cull price. She is in prime condition and will make a beautiful lawnmower or pet. Photo taken May 2022.

Offered for sale as a pet Katahdin ewe $275

Sweet and gentle old wheaten colored girl who’s had lots of lambs here in her lifetime.  Good hair coat. Her performance is starting to dwindle here, but she could be bred again in a more generous feeding environment at a small homestead. Or she can just retire and live out her days as a lawnmower. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 3/3, 2/2, 3/2, 3/2, 2/0, 3/2, 2/0. She was capable of raising triplets as a young ewe, but in her later years, I pulled one and let her raise twins. Twice she’s aborted twins early, including this year, so this could be a signal that her productive years are winding down. But she does have really good genetics, especially for prolifacy.

Photo taken May 2022. EBVs from 2022 lamb crop WWT data and includes the new Genomics run calculations, and this ewe has been genotyped. This ewe can go to a new home any time.

This is a pretty red ewe with white markings, white tail, and long hind socks.  She is fairly petite. Her dam is out of very old-stock PNW genetics, sire is from Thistle Grove Farm (John Bare, DVM, in Iowa). This girl has had some bum luck. She started out well, raised twins as a yearling, which is unusual in my operation. The next year, she had a single ewelamb, which I still have. In 2020 she had a tiny, weak preemie-type lamb that died after a few days, despite aggressive treatment and oversight. And in 2021, she had premature stillborn twins, over which she was very upset. This year, she delivered twins, one stillborn, but I had a higher than normal rate of stillborns this year, so it’s hard to know if she has a pregnancy issue trend or just more bad luck.  She comes from a really good maternal line and is a very protective, maternal dam. But her EBVs are hurt by the variable performance of her lambing record and lower accuracies since there is little data about her and her dam in the system. Lambing record starting as a yearling: 2/2, 1/1, 1/0, 2/0, 2/1. I’ve just priced her as a pet, she could be bred again, but may not prove to be productive over the long haul.
