We used three Icelandic ram lambs in fall of 2012. I put Ralph, our yearling, out with the ewes in September, but when he was sold in mid October, we put our our new ram lamb, Rambo. I had a couple ewes who would not stay in the fence so I kept them a stall and assigned them one of our homebred ram lambs, Rusty.
Ralph is black mouflon and carries spotting. MNS RAM RALPH B4H 10Y -[CAN]664681
His mother was one of our first ewes and an all time favorite. She was a very protective ewe and raised twins all but her first year. Her lambs were always some of our best. We retained three of his daughters. I doubt he bred too many Icelandic ewes, but hope he bred most of our crossbred ewes.
GI RAM 01H 1Z -[CAN]680585-H
Rambo is new and unrelated to the rest of my flock. He’s white, but we have yet to see what colors or patterns he can produce. Possibly black and gray and maybe spotting. He was a big lamb and had a very high interest in the ewes this fall so we should have some lambs, but not until late March/early April.
MNS RAM RUSTY M2H 07Z -[CAN]684253
Rusty was not the biggest ram lamb, but he had the best horns, good conformation and lovely fleece and was one of the fastest growing, despite being born late in the season. His mother is Andromeda, another favorite ewe.
Rams we have had in the past:
BDO RAM TUCKER M5H 09X -[CAN]658867-H
Tucker was our ram in 2010 and 2011 and he was solid moorit with fabulous fleece and a nice solid build.
TY RAM B24H 16T -[CAN]625853-H
Jack , Black/Gray Mouflon carrying spotting and moorit. He had some leader genetics and had a wonderful temperament, but needed his horns trimmed.
MNS GRIZZ RAM M4H 03W -[CAN]639505
Grizz, a moorit mouflon lamb with really wide horns and beautiful fleece was out of Modi. He sired three ewe lambs, but they are no longer in my flock. The two ram lambs pictures on my home page are Grizz and his twin brother Max.
JAKE DCI RAM B3H 7P -[CAN]587148-H
Our first Icelandic ram was Jake, a very large black badgerfaced ram with wonderful fleece. Rose was his daughter and although I’ve sold her, I have a few of her daughters.
The two ram lambs pictures on my home page are Max and Grizz. Grizz, the moorit mouflon, is one of our flock rams this year. He has 2 ewes lambs and 2 ewes to breed. Part of him is also pictured with the Jacob rams. The picture is of our Jacob ram lamb, but Grizz is on the right side of the picture with me showing him.
