Offered for sale as a purebred, registered Katahdin ewe $250
Pretty and sleek mahogany ewe with white blaze, bracelet and tail. This girl has served me well, I used one of her sons extensively as a sire, and she has produced very nice lambs every year. Last winter she grew thin and struggled, I brought her into the barn and treated her with everything I could think of, and she bounced back and looks great now. She didn’t hold a pregnancy this year, I assume due to being in such poor shape during breeding and winter. I think she will probably breed again fine and could keep producing into her teens, at a small farm that feeds her well. But I’ve priced her at cull price, and she may also make a fine pasture pet. She is very calm. She has very strong growth metrics, but gets dinged for NLB despite twinning most of her life, based on her pedigree data. Lambing record starting as a twp-year old: 2/2, 2/2, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 2/2, 0/0.
