Nigel

Purchased from Marie Minnich at Marushka Farms located in Danville, Pennsylvania

Nigel was a very quiet, respectful boy that we really enjoyed having on our farm.  Due to very unfortunate circumstances he died the 2nd day of breeding season, but was miraculously able to breed a couple of our ewes during those 2 days! Truly amazing boy.

 

 

 Alaska

Born in 2016 as a single and came to our flock in the fall of 2017 to replace a ram that we lost.  Alaska is an impressive sized ram. He is a mellow boy who loves his graham crackers!  Alaska is an RR moorit ram who does not carry much spotting. He is badger and light blue. His fleece is a light cream color and has a very soft handle.

 Orlando  

 

Orlando is a wether that was born in 2015 and came as part of our original flock. As an adult he is a big boy weighing in over 200lbs. He is a sweet boy who gets along with everyone.  When it comes to the “little” ram lambs he is a great babysitter who keeps them all in line.  Orlando looks like the world’s largest teddy bear. He gives a huge chocolate brown fleece each year. It is very soft and fun to work with.
