The Ram You Need.

For Sale:
Pitchfork 926 “Fred” 2016 Registered Bluefaced Leicester Ram
Fred has been the main ram in our flock for the last two years, so it’s time for him to find a new flock.   What can I say about the ram who has sired all of our 2018 and 2019 lambs?  The ram who still wants a few pets now and then, and who loves to strike a pose just for fun?
We love his all-over strength and the rapid, balanced growth of his lambs.  He gains and maintains weight on moderate feed – the challenge is keeping him from getting overly fat!  He has classic BFL wool character with a purled fleece that has commanded over $20/lb each year.  Fred’s grandparents are Trueblue, Ward Reva, Black Mountain and Ward Bonnie.  The only thing I would change would be to lengthen his neck a tad and raise his ears a smidgin – otherwise, I don’t know that I’d change a thing.
Fred’s lambs are just as good- they consistently display his quality wool and correct blue coloration.  As a bonus, they have fun, sweet personalities that make them pleasant to work with.  Fred carries natural color.
It would be my strong preference that Fred to go a flock for purebreeding purposes.   We are located in Irasburg, VT but can travel with him if needed.
