Herdsire Finn

Finn--RBR 76U, born 4/20/08
We bought Finn's dam (Abigail SRX 180N) this spring in the Tongue River dispersal. His sire is Superman SRX 867S. He is joining our ram pen, and will have his own group of girls this fall. I can't wait to see what he produces. What a gorgeous ram! His lustrous fleece is so silky and drapes beautifully. Heavy wide horns, and a nice stocky frame underneath all of that wool. The spotting on his face are indicative of the spotting genetics he carries. Finn has a presence that makes him stand out in a crowd. Below, at the fair, he is being shown in the "breeding pen of 3" group. My daughter plans on showing him in the Junior show at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in September.
