Ram for Sale or Trade

This is Pedro. I really don't want to sell him - however - I have to make room for ram lambs coming in - and he's too small for my big boys at the other farm - they would kill him. And - he's too big for my little rams - you know the drill.

Anyway - Pedro is an equisite HST (head, socks, tail) - or for you more traditional types - yuglet, sokket, with a lovely, crimpy black fleece. Conformation is correct in every way - and those horns are awesome - and striped. Just love them.
He is very much a gentleman - but friendly enough for chin scratches.

And his genetics are very diverse - he comes from Valley Road Rusty (who is a mioget - so he carries the modified genetics), and Woolly Nelly - who looks very much like him.

I am willing to part with him for $350 - or an even trade for a solid, non fading moorit EWE lamb - or yearling with single coated crimpy fleece and good conformation.

Please - if you are interested in this fella - contact me - I'd hate to have to send him to market.
He will produce flash in your flock - if you breed him to another yuglet, flecket or sokket - you should get something pretty much like him. Bred to solids or spots - you'll get lots of smirlets and flecket markings.

I'd like to see his genetics continue on. Oh - and one more thing - I am heading up to Uxbridge
in later July - so if you can meet me somewhere around that area - I can at least get him that far. I am also probably heading to the Kingston area in late August - or September, so that is also an option. I also frequently travel up the Bruce Peninsula on weekends as well.
Otherwise - contact me re shipping and we'll see what we can work out.

Hmmm Nancy - too bad that border wasn't open going the other way.
Isn't he a good looking fellow.

By the way - what can you tell me about a little girl named
Zha Zha Mikaela?

PS - love the puppy!

Zha Zha was my first HST lamb. She's in-bred Zorro (he's her sire and grand sire). She had very nice fleece, I was not real happy with her rear (a little close as a lamb ~ she may have outgrown that) and she may very well carry the half-polled gene since Zorro definitely does. I think that Bill was always pleased with the lambs he got from Zha Zha.

I sure wish I could get that ram from you!!

Hi Nancy - Zha Zha is coming to
Kalwa Taure in a few weeks. From what I see - she looks pretty good.
I'm so excited to have a Bluff Country HST finally. I sure wish that border was open - I'd bring Pedro up to you (just so I could visit with you and Dream - and Bella)
