I'm a Big Boy Now...

Meet my magnificent yearling ram ~ Bluff Country American Idol.
(BC Dusty Rose X BC Black Diamond).

This is what I like my ram lambs to grow up to look like!

Idol almost didn't make it to become a yearling ram. I had decided that I wasn't going to winter over any extra ram lambs and was loading up the two I had left, to take them to the butcher. (I know ~ I'm sorry) When I went to put a halter on Idol, I was struck by how wonderfully soft his fleece was. I had always thought he was gorgeous ~ conformation wise ~ but when I felt that fleece, I knew I had to give him a chance to pass on his genetics. Hence, American Idol lives on!

If you're looking for a SHOW QUALITY, black ram, who carries spotting genetics (and moorit), consider American Idol. Not only is he extremely correct, conformation wise; he has awesome horns, beautiful, intermediate fleece, a great tail and a sweet, gentle personality!

I will be showing Idol in the Yearling Ram class at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, in Jefferson, WI., in September. From there, my hope is that he will move on to a new home where he will sire many beautiful, Shetland lambs.

    He is such a sweet and handsome ram and I hope he does well at the show and finds his destiny with some lucky ewes. I can personally vouch for his temperment--I think he is your sweetest ram and you have some very well-behaved rams.

  5. Wow! He is really stunning, Nancy. I hope you do well in the show with him.
    Take Care :)
