RETIRED RAMS


BRANDUR (DL 320S)

5 May 2008

Brandur is a magnificent ram – a spotted black-gray badger, and he may carry moorit.  But the spotting makes him mostly white.  His fleece is incredibly long, soft and lustrous.  He passes this trait on to his babies, too!   He has small scurs, which makes him a bit more deferential to his fellow rams than he might be otherwise.  His personality is sweet and gentle, and he is very well-mannered. He was a wonderful flock sire, and leaves behind some beautiful and productive offspring.

Phenotype: B23SP

Genotype: Ag/AbBB/BB Ss/Ss

AI Genetics: 1/8 Dalur, 1/8 Jokull, (25% AI)


Wethers


ASKJA (BEL 102W)  

25 April 2009

Askja is the son of Brandur and Grimsey, and brother of Hekla, and you can tell by just looking at them!  His face, however, has more of the “evil clown” look.  He only needs one worming during the high season.  

Phenotype: B23SC


MILES, aka Punkin (BEL 107W) 

8 May 2009

“Punky”  is a special little guy. He is the horned moorit son of Myrdal and Surtsey.   Like his sister Brigitta, he was premature, and weighed less than 3 lbs at birth.  His mom emphatically wanted nothing to do with him, which was really OK with him, since he got to live in the house and drink goat’s milk from a bottle.  He overtook all the other lambs, and is now a very chunky little guy.  He has chocolate brown tog and a warm brown thel that is all soft, soft, soft!  

Phenotype:  M5H
