I've been on the hunt for new bloodlines to add to our flock. It's been hard to find a proven ram with good horns, fleece, heavy build, milky lines, calm temperament ..... Where are all of the proven rams? No one seems to offer them for sale. Betting on a ram lamb is always a gamble. The genetics can be good, but that is never a guarantee. Those ram lambs can be awfully cute, and quite tempting to buy....Fable, our other mature ram is also a nice boy.... a black mouflon with an easy going temperament, wide horns, nice build.
I put a deposit down on a nice looking moorit mouflon yearling ram from The Creeks Edge. Alan Leighton is a very respected breeder, with a beautiful flock. The genetics will be a good fit with out flock, and the color and pattern will be a nice bonus.
I would really love to add another ram or two, and it would be especially nice if we could manage a trade. Our two mature rams are really nice. Wide horns, parasite resistant, muscular build. I'm especially keen on Grady. He's a yearling, but has been growing out exceptionally well. His fleece is rich and black, mild temperament, very long muscular build, wide horns.
