ram lamb for sale and a moorit ewe

This handsome lad is for sale. Sire is WhitePine Roman (F1 Orion) and dam is Justalit'l Chloe. He is white, showing his fawn katmoget pattern underneath (incomplete dominance). I was thinking he was a giant spot, but his katmoget is apparent on his spots on his rump. He is horned and will be a nice single coated ram. He is white/katmoget and is moorit based. I have much of both of his parents lines and that is why he is offered for sale. Micron results and blood tested negative flock, annually. Typical Shetland tail, very growthy. His dam is one of my foundation ewes and his sire is fine fleeced white ram with giant horns. Pending final evaluation he'll be offered for sale $325 Can be delivered to Black Sheep Gathering or Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival in September. A keeper for sure! Sire is WhitePine Caiphas (horned gray katmoget F1 Holly) and WhitePine Neriah fawn katmoget (Blues x Nirvana)

I'm gone for the weekend but am borrowing my sister's digital camera for a few days so will have more lambs to post (for sale ones too) when i return.

I promise to reply to emails at that time and post more photos of animals of interest.

Hi Garrett... are the colored areas on his body colored clear to the skin? and is the skin colored under them? There is no chance the dam carries Ag is there? Also, is there any chance he is white with extra phaeo?

Hi Stephen! His dam is homozygous fawn katmoget (Justalit'l Chloe). His color is to the skin. I thought phaeo as well until I saw the katmoget marking on his thighs/hips. Crazy huh? Both parents carry spotting so i thought maybe giant white spot too. Sire is Awt/Aa. no Ag in either parent.
