Why: We have used him for 3 years to cover our ewes and our flock now has too much of his genetics
Progeny: Lambs have good coloring, good color change to white face and legs from the better ewes. Average birth weight is about 8lb twins, rang is 5 to 11 lbs. Market lambs have excellent meat-to-bone ratio, true to Herdwick breed.
He is a proven sire for 3 seasons here at Helder~Herdwyck Farm. He exhibits, and passes on, strong Herdwick color and fiber traits. Though large for the Herdwick breed, American sheep will always be larger than the Cumbrian hill flocks are, due to difference in forage. Increased genetics are resulting in smaller, stockier body type true to Herdwick. We are recommending him to experienced shepherds, as, being a primitive breed, he must be watched during breeding season due to his possible defensiveness of the ewes.
