Once again we have five lambs and, as usual, more rams than ewes. Our first lamb of the season was Elena, a black ewe born 3/18. Sire is Gibbs, dual registered rr, and dam is Rachel, rr (see Our Southdowns). A week later (3/25), a lanky off-white ram we call Buddy was born to Kenzi and Paddy, our Winterhaven-born rr ram. A second ewe, this one off-white, was born 3/30. Zeva, one of our original ewes, is the mother, Gibbs the sire. The final birth on April 2 was a big one, twin rams. Sire is Paddy and dam is Abby, the other one of our originals, who consistently produces twins.
Since both of Elena's parents are Codon RR, she is too. We are sending blood samples today to determine if the other four are RR or QR.
We have a list of potential buyers and currently are contacting them to see if our 2019 lambs meet their needs. If past experiences are repeated, one or more of our lambs may be available. Please contact us at 414-732-7320 if you are interested in 2019 or 2020 lambs.
