RETIRED RAMS

Twin Springs Forvik (S28112)

26 April 2008

Forvik is a medium size ram with a big heart!  His color is emsket, and he has a very small krunet marking; he carries moorit and possibly the modifier genes.  His fleece is of the primitive type, has an intermediate amount of crimp and is incredibly soft.  He is a very docile and obedient boy, even during breeding season! He has left behind some beautiful lambs, and his wonderful personality and fleece is still evident in the Trinity Farm flock

Genotype: Aa/Aa BB/Bb Ss/Ss


Windswept Boron (S26985)

16 March 2008

Boron is a big moorit ram with flecket/smirslet/socket markings.  His fleece is on the English side of intermediate, and has a nice crimp, and is very soft.  Boron is a very friendly, and extremely well-mannered boy.  You can see the wonderfully flashy spotting in his progeny !
