This is Swiftriver Neville an F1 Heights Orion and the sire to many of the this years lamb crop. So he is 50% UK and 50% old New England blood (Maple Ridge). This ram makes me want to keep horns in my flock because simply he is magnificent. He is also the calmest coolest ram ever at three years old, he doesn't have a mean bone in his body. Now mind you he is the alpha ram but his presence alone seems to be enough to command the respect he needs to be in charge. He also seems to respect that I am ultimately the REAL alpha of the place and as long as I bring him good things like food, water, fresh pasture, a few scratches, and ewes in the fall, he finds no need what so ever to ruin a good thing. His microns fall of his two year old year were 26.5 SD 4.8 and CV of 18.2 SF of 25.2 and a CRV (find that an interesting number to look at as it seems that the higher it is the more crimp) of 58.9. He is for sale as I generally like to use a ram for a year or two and then have them move on. He carries moorit and spots. I am keeping his two sons pictured below for further evaluation. Ideally I would let him have a breeding group here in the fall and then let him go to a new flock. He is priced at $350 but there is a $50 discount if purchased with a ewe. He also has two HST black and white ram lambs, also priced at $350 available for sale. His musket HST son is sold and is going to Cape Cod!
The last male puppy sold and will be leaving for his new home tomorrow. The last female may also be sold to a good friend. If they decide they are not ready for a dog at this time, we might keep her ourselves. She has been here too long and we have gotten attached. If our friends take her, we will still be able to see her often.
