Registered Icelandic breeding stock
Our three year old flock sire, Jason is for sale this year.
2016 lambs are here, but aren’t yet evaluated. Pricing will start at $400 for registered, breeding stock quality lambs. Not all lambs will necessarily be breeding stock quality, but many are looking good so far! I prefer to see how they grow over the summer and ideally evaluate them after shearing in the fall, but if people are interested in buying one, I can keep you posted on how they are doing. I’m only able to keep one or two myself this year so there should be good ones left to sell.
They will be registered with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation. They are mostly sired by Jason, CBI RAM B24H 69A (694402), a black gray/mouflon ram from Crossbreeze farm who won supreme ram at Michigan Fiber Festival in 2013 as a lamb. We bred his daughters to one of two half brothers last fall and we have three of those lambs who may be available. Most of my sheep are horned, but Ella is scurred.
Brigetta has a ram and ewe who are both black gray mouflon. The ewe has flashing and both are growing well and are some of my nicest looking lambs. Brigetta is the ewe I consider my best in parasite resistance, mothering, abilitiy to feed twins well and all around personality. She is a big ewe with an enormous rumen and loads of personality. Many of her past ram lambs have gone ot other flocks and I now have two of her daughters from previous years.
Fiona has a moorit gray mouflon ram lamb and a moorit gray ewe lamb. Fiona is an exceptional mother and both her lambs look amazing. She has the longest, thickest fleece in my flock and has good parasite resistance.
Zena is Brigetta’s spotted black mouflon daughter. She’s three this year and only had a single black mouflon ewe. Her lamb is the largest right now and really looks nice.
Midnight has a black gray ram and a black mouflon ewe. The ewe is somewhat larger, but the ram has a nice stocky build and I have high hopes for him. Midnight and Fiona are related and Midnight also has a bigger than average fleece, good parasite resistance and a suspicious/protective personality like Fiona. Her last year’s ewe lamb was long and stocky.
Fritzie has a pretty pair of lambs, but currently the ewe lamb is growing faster. Her ewe is moorit gray mouflon, like her and the ram is black gray mouflon with the frosting that some mouflons with HNYKLL in their backgrounds show as lambs.
Ella has a very pretty black gray ewe lamb. She will carry spotting since Ella is spotted.
Andromeda has twin rams, black mouflon and I think the other homozygous gray moorit. The mouflon looks a bit bigger and bulkier, but these two are my youngest lambs so time will tell how they turn out.
Primrose has a black badger/grey ewe and a black grey/mouflon ram. The ram was 4 pounds at birth and still seems behind in growth. I’m thinking of keeping the daughter to replace her mother who has issues with parasite resistance. I may cull Primrose or find her a home where her lack of resistance isn’t so much a problem.
Hanna is one of my two year old first time mothers and her lambs are sired by Zena’s 2015 ram lamb, a beautiful black mouflon with wide horns. Her lambs are a black gray mouflon ewe and black mouflon ram.
Vesta is another two year old and she had a huge black mouflon ram lamb. He’s big and growing well, but I don’t like the direction of his horns at this point.
Flash is our third two year old ewe and her moorit gray mouflon ewe lamb is growing well and Flash is a really excellent first time mother.
