This the my "pick of the litter" for ram lambs this year. I got a lot of scurs in my boys this spring and I'm disappointed about that. This musket katmoget ram is by Twin Springs Bearclaw, and out of Lil'Country Meadow. Meadow either carries two poll genes, or has alleles for small scurs because she always throws "smoothies".
He might be the only polled ram lamb I have to sell this year, depending if Valora's grey breaks off his scurs or not. Might carry spots, might not.
As of right now, I am planning for this to be the last year that I use a half polled breeding ram. Every time I use a half poll, I'm breeding a horn gene back into half my lambs. So I plan on using Sheamus and putting him up for sale. I suspect Hickory and Nightcap to be full polls, maybe my new Shamu boy, so I'll start using them and rearing my own suspect full poll flock sires. I've got a wide enough genetic base in my ewe flock, and I can always bring in the odd new ewe if there is some trait I want to pull in.
